    beef chuck trimmed of all fat, cubed (24 oz)
    4 cups kidney beans
    2 medium onions (2 c)
    1 green bell pepper (1.75 c diced)
    1 can tomato sauce
    3 garlic cloves minced or crushed
    chili powder
    chipotle pepper powder
    salt to taste
    Oregano and basil and cumin to taste
    I add in cinnamon and cocoa powder too; about 1 tsp of the former, 1/2 of the latter
    water to make broth


I do a BOGO on the chuck and prep the day I buy. It is not usually done same day; you can save time, but not dollars, purchasing stew beef.
-saute beef in olive oil
-layer onions and garlic in crockpot
-add flour/chili powder mixture to beef once browned
-stir over heat for a few minutes to "cook" flour
-add in spices
-add in just enough water to make a very thick gravy-
-add in tomato sauce and mix well
-scrape these into and over the onions and garlic
-cover and cook on high for 2-4 hours, adding in green peppers in last hour
and tasting and adjusting spices
serve over Brown Rice, pasta, or any other grain. (BROWN rice is not acct'd for in cals!) I also usually put in diced tomatoes, and corn! those have to be figured into total, tho
