Ingredients

    1.25 pound 93%-lean ground beef
    1 large red bell pepper, chopped
    1 large onion, chopped
    6 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 tablespoon chili powder
    2 teaspoons ground cumin
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
    1 16-ounce jar green salsa, green enchilada sauce or taco sauce
    1/4 cup water
    1 15-ounce can pinto or kidney beans, rinsed


Directions

Cook beef, bell pepper and onion in a large saucepan over medium heat, crumbling the meat with a wooden spoon, until the meat is browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Add garlic, chili powder, cumin and cayenne; cook until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Stir in salsa (or sauce) and water; bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in beans and cook until heated through, about 1 minute.
