Sweet and Spicy ChiliIngredients:
-1 medium onion, chopped
-1 green bell pepper, chopped
-2 teaspoons minced garlic
-2 pounds ground beef
-2 19 ounce cans of dark red kidney beans, strained and rinsed
-1 cup beef broth
-1 28 ounce can diced tomatoes

-1 tablespoon cumin
-1 teaspoon chili powder (add more for more spice)
-Extra virgin olive oil (about 1 tablespoon)
-Salt and pepper to taste
-Sour cream and shredded cheese (optional for topping)
In a medium saucepan heat a little olive oil (about 1 tablespoons worth) and saute the onions and green peppers. Add in the ground beef and shake just a little salt and pepper. Cook the beef for a few minutes until it is mostly browned. Then, add all the rest of the ingredients including the cumin and chili powder. Make sure before you add the beans though that you strain and rinse them.
Bring the chili to a boil and then reduce hit and allow to cook for at least another 45 minutes to an hour. Serve warm in a bowl and add a dollop of sour cream or even some shredded cheese! Enjoy!
