Here are some of the ingredients needed.
First chop two large bell peppers and two large onions.
This is my little Oskar that I have had for over thirty or more years. It just keeps on working. I love chopping onions with it so I don't cry.
Put a couple of tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet and saute the onions and peppers till tender.
While the onions and peppers are cooking add 3lbs of ground beef ( I used round) to a large stock pot and start browning it. Add 3tbsp. of chili powder while browning the beef.
Then combine the meat and veggies together.
Add the rest of the ingredients and let it simmer for thirty minutes or more. I usually let it simmer for an hour or two.
I also add a about a 1/4 tsp. of red pepper flakes and one or two bay leaves. Add salt and pepper to taste.
