1 pound lean ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons chili powder
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
1 can (28 ounces) tomatoes, diced, with juices
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 can (15 ounces) chili beans, small red beans, or kidney beans, drained and rinsed
Cook first 3 ingredients in a large saucepan until meat is browned, stirring until it crumbles; drain off excess fat. Add chili powder and next 8 ingredients, stirring well; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Add beans, stirring well, and cook until thoroughly heated.
Nice dish to have on a cold wintery night to warm up your family.
