Mrs. Austin’s Chili


1.5 lbs ground beef

1 cup chopped green pepper

1/2 chopped yellow onion (about a cup)

4 cloves garlic

Two 16oz cans diced tomatoes

2 cans dark red beans (any kind of bean, really)

1 small can tomato sauce (or ketchup can be substituted)

2 Tbsp chili powder

1 tsp dried basil

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper


In a large pot, cook the meat with the garlic until the meat is half done. Add the green pepper and onion, and proceed to brown the meat. Add everything else, and simmer for 1/2 hour to 45 minutes. Serve with some delicious cornbread.
