Lynn Nye


1 Tbsp olive oil
1 lb ground beef
1 large yellow onion – chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced, or 1 teaspoon garlic powder
14 oz diced tomatoes, undrained
16 oz tomato sauce
15 oz kidney beans, drained
1 4-oz can green chilies
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp paprika
˝ tsp cumin
˝ tsp salt

Heat olive oil in a large pot. Add ground beef and onion and cook until beef is browned. Drain off excess grease.
Add garlic, if using, and cook until fragrant (about 30 seconds) – If you’re using garlic powder, skip this step and add the garlic powder in with the rest of the spices below.
Add all remaining ingredients and stir well.
Bring to a boil, and cook 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently.
Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for at least 15 minutes (the longer you simmer the better it will be!).
Serve with preferred toppings (like sour cream and corn chips).
