DIRECTIONS

  • In a skillet, brown meat. Drain and set aside.
  • Spray a large (6- or 7-qt.) pot with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Add the onion, bell peppers, garlic, and celery, and saute briefly.
  • Stir in the diced tomatoes and the Rotel.
  • Add several shakes of cumin and chili powder (I do it until I can smell them -- you can always add more later), and also the italian seasoning, basil and oregano, if using.
  • Cook for about 8 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
  • Add the beans, browned meat, red pepper flakes, and chili seasoning.
  • Partially cover, and simmer for at least 4 hours.
  • Serve with shredded cheese and cornbread, if desired.
