I like this served over rice. The taste is similar to sloppy joes but it is more of a sauce. I like this served over rice. The taste is similar to sloppy joes but it is more of a sauce.

    2.5 lbs extra lean ground beef
    1 16 oz package frozen sliced mixed bell peppers and onion
    1 medium onion, chopped
    2 tbs chopped garlic
    1 6 oz can tomato paste
    2 8 oz cans tomato sauce
    1 7 3/4 oz can el pato mexican tomato sauce
    1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
    1 28 oz can petite diced tomatoes
    1/3 cup ketchup
    1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
    2 tbs apple cider vinegar

In a large pot saute the onions and peppers until they are tender.
Add the ground beef, chopped garlic, 1/2 of the seasoning salt, and 1/2 of the black pepper.
Continue to cook until the meat is cooked through and the vegetables are very tender.
While cooking the ground beef be sure to break it up into very small pieces.
Reduce the heat to simmer and add all of the rest of the ingredients.
Simmer about 20 to 30 minutes minimum but longer is OK too if you have the time.
