Directions:
In half an inch of oil or bacon fat, saute until soft:
3 chopped onions, 3 chopped green peppers, and
3 large cloves of finely chopped garlic.In another
pan brown 1 or 2 pounds of ground beef. Drain the
fat from the beef and add the beef to the minions and
peppers (or add the onions and peppers to the beef).
Now add 1 or 2 cans of ground tomatoes, 1 can of
tomato paste and 2 to 8 Tb of chili powder.
(You can always add more chili powder later, so start off
easy) Add 1 Tb of sugar,
a sprinkling of salt, pepper and paprika, 2 bay leaves, a
teaspoon of cumin, a teaspoon of basil and a pinch of
cayenne or some hot chili sauce. Simmer all this for at
least a half an hour until it is good and thick. Then add
1 or 2 cans of kidney beans.

Serve this on rice and top it with some chopped raw onions.

Personal Notes:
This is from Alice's Restaurant Cookbook.
It originally came with a little record attached that was
an introduction by Arlo Guthrie. Don't know where that
went?? Her recipes never include an ingredient list so I
followed her convention here.
