Ready to make chili? Here we go.
Heat extra-virgin olive oil in a large pot until it is hot but not smoking. Add your diced onions and bell peppers. Let them sauté for about 10 minutes. Yum.
Next, add the ground beef, breaking up the meat with a spatula and incorporating the peppers and onion. Cook until the meat is no longer pink.
Now stir in the crushed tomatoes, garlic, and spices. Stir it all up and simmer for an hour.
Just before you’re ready to serve, stir in a tablespoon of vinegar for a real flavor boost. Then season with salt and pepper and your chili is ready to enjoy with Jalapeño Peppers if you like it hot. 😊
