Ingredients

    2 pounds ground beef (I use lean ground turkey)
    One 29-oz can tomato sauce
    One 29-oz can kidney beans (with liquid)
    One 29-oz can pinto beans (with liquid)
    1 cup diced onion (1 medium onion)
    1/2 cup diced green chile (2 chiles)
    1/4 cup diced celery
    3 medium tomatoes, chopped
    2 tsp cumin powder
    3 tbsp chili powder
    1.5 tsp black pepper
    2 tsp salt
    2 cups water

Directions

I usually make this in the roaster around noon to have for dinner.

1. Brown the ground beef or ground turkey in a skillet over medium heat; drain off fat.

2. Using a fork, crumble the cooked beef into pea-size pieces.

3. In a large pot (or roaster) combine the beef plus all the remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer over low heat. Cook, stirring every 15 minutes, for 2-3 hours.

Makes about 12 servings.
