2 lbs ground beef or turkey
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 ea yellow or white onion, chopped
1 ea green pepper, chopped
4 clove garlic, minced
cup flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
2 ea jalapeno peppers, finely chopped (opt)
3 tbsp chili powder
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
tsp cayenne pepper
1 48 oz can tomato juice
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
1 15 oz can tomato sauce
1 16 oz can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 16 oz can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
Shredded cheese and sour cream, for topping

1) In a large skillet, cook ground meat over medium-high heat until no longer pink. Transfer the meat to a bowl. Drain excess grease from skillet, but do not clean.

2) Add the olive oil to the skillet. Add the onion, green pepper, garlic, parsley and jalapeno peppers (if using) and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft and fragrant (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat and add the chili powder, cumin, sugar, oregano, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Stir until combined.

3) If cooking the chili stove top, add the cooked meat back to the skillet. If using a slow cooker, add meat-veggie mixture to the slow cooker. Add the tomato juice, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, kidney beans and pinto beans to either the skillet or slow cooker, depending on which you are using. On stove top, bring to a boil,k dial back to medium-low and simmer for 2 hours. In slow cooker, cook on low for 7 to 8 hours. Serve warm with cheese and sour cream
