Chop up and saute the onions, garlic, and bell pepper in a
little butter. Add the meat and brown it. Add one (1) tbsp of the
chili powder, stir it all up. Add the beans, stewed tomatoes,
tomato sauce, and sundried tomatoes. Chop up the green chilis and
add them to the pot. Add two (2) cups of water. Add the Lawry's,
Morton's and Mrs Dash's. Stir it all up again. If the color
doesn't look right to you, then stir in more chili powder until
it does. For us, that's at least another tbsp of chili powder.
Let simmer for 30 - 45 minutes. Just before serving, check to see
if it is as thick as you like it. If it is too soupy, then mix
some cornstarch in cold water to make a thin paste. Add this
mixture to the chili.
Serves eight hungry ranch hands if there
are side dishes; but only two if this is it.
