Beanless Beef Chili

Made this chili one night when Normy was at a friend’s house watching football! I decided to do a beanless chili as I don’t like beans!

You will need:
about 2 pounds of ground beef for chili 93% Lean 7% Fat
1 Green bell pepper, chopped
1 Red bell pepper, chopped
2 29 oz cans of tomato sauce
1 28 oz can of San Marzano whole tomatoes, chopped
one red onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 14.5 oz cans of fire roasted tomatoes
2 10 oz cans of regular rotel (you could do spicy if that is what you like)
large can of tomato paste
(I have a can of beef broth in the picture, but I ended up not using it)

so get you a nice big deep pot, I used my dutch oven (of course) and preheated it to medium high heat and added the ground beef and salt and pepper

brown for a few minutes then break the meat up

you can break it up into smaller chunks or bigger I did in between to make it feel like more of a rustic chili

Cook until its all browned and then add in the diced, red onion

cook the onion until translucent 7-10 minutes

then add in the minced garlic, I cleared a little of the meat and onion so the garlic would hit the heat directly

and cook for about a minute and stir into the meat and onion

Then add in your red and green bell peppers
