1 lb. ground meat (lean beef or lean turkey)
1 large green pepper (or 2 small green peppers), chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 large (~24 oz) can black beans
2 -12 oz cans vegetarian baked beans
3 - 24oz cans Crushed Tomatoes
4 Tbsp. Chili Powder (add more or less to taste)
2 tsp. Sugar (or Sugar Substitute)

Brown ground meat (high heat) in pan until completely cooked through. Drain off fat. Add a shake of salt and a few shakes of pepper.
Add chopped green peppers and onions to the meat, stir, and cook until the onions start to sweat (i.e. until the onions look a little translucent).
In a large, deep pot, add the meat, peppers, and onion mixture. Then, carefully, add the crushed tomatoes, black beans, and baked beans. Make sure you add the baked beans last. Stir until all ingredients are combined.
Add sugar.
Add Chili powder (to taste).
Stir until all ingredients are combined.
Turn heat on stove down to low.
Cook for 60-90 minutes, stirring occasionally. (Need dinner in less than 60 minutes? Simmer chili for as long as you have time, then serve hot).
Chili can be served alone, over rice, with chips, or with cheese.
