Neddy's Easy Chili Recipe

  •  2 pounds lean ground beef or turkey 
  •  1 onion, chopped 
  •  1 bell pepper, chopped 
  •  1 carrot or celery stalk chopped (optional) 
  •  1 can stewed tomatoes 
  •  2 (16 ounce) cans tomato sauce (chili-flavored) 
  •  1 can diced Rotel tomatoes (mild or spicy according to your taste)
  •  1 can ranch style beans
  • 1 can pinto beans 
  •  1 can kidney beans 
  • Dash of dried Italian Seasoning to taste (optional)
Cook and crumble ground meat with onion and pepper. If you used lean meat, there will be little or no grease, however if you used lower quality hamburger, drain grease before proceeding. Add tomato sauce and canned tomatoes. Simmer for one half hour (30 minutes). Add all remaining ingredients, partially draining canned beans if you prefer a less soupy chili. Mix all together in a big pot, and simmer at least another half hour or longer.

NOTE: If I have it on hand, I will add a small smoked sausage (sliced) with the ground meat. I usually freeze half of this to serve later in the month. When I get to the remainder of the leftovers, I often add cooked elbow macaroni when reheating to stretch it a bit (Chili-Mac).
