Prep Time:  15 mins

1 tomato diced

1/2 cucumber chopped

3 scallions chopped


  1. On top of the stove, add meat, onion, green pepper, garlic cloves, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, and sugar to a large pot.  To keep it mild, use less chili powder. To make it hot, use more. Cook on medium until the meat is brown.
  2. Taste the meat and add more seasoning if necessary.
  3. Drain meat and place it back into the pot.
  4. Add kidney beans and tomato sauce.  Stir.
  5. Cook on high heat until the chili reaches a boil.
  6. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for 25-30 minutes. (note:  powder becomes hotter the longer you simmer)


Serve hot, and add fixings of choice to each helping.
