** These are just suggestions, so please add more or less depending on your taste. I like my chili spicy so I tend to add more chili powder, cayenne and black pepper.
Saute garlic over med. heat using a little liquid so your garlic won't burn. Add beef and let brown, be sure to keep moving it around so it doesn't burn since this is EXTRA Lean beef and there is practically no fat. Add more liquid if you need to about a Tablespoon at a time.
While meat is browning dice up tomato and puree in blender, add a little broth or water to help it move around a little in the blender if needed.
Once meat is brown add the tomato puree and 1/2 cup of the liquid. Begin adding spices, try a little at a time if you are unsure and then add by taste. Let the chili simmer on med/low heat for about 15 min or until it reaches the consistency you like. I like mine a little thicker so I let it cook about 15 minute.
