    SJP's Wanna-be Award Winning Chili

    At first you think it is too hot, then you have to keep tasting it to be sure 'til it is gone

    2 lbs 93% lean beef
    2 small onions, small dice
    1 bell pepper, fine dice
    3 cloves garlic minced or grated
    2 large fresh tomatoes
    2-3 heaping TBSP Reg. Chili powder
    2 heaping TBSP Ground Arbol Chili, this stuff is in the hanging cheapo Mexican spices, it looks like Paprika but is hotter (I think 1 TBSP is what most people would like, I just make this stuff hot) I guess this is the "secret ingredient"
    1 scant teaspoon oregano
    1 dried Japanese Chile, crumbled or 3 sprinkles cayene (this is optional, it makes it REALLY hot, too hot for many, especially kids)
    2 teasp garlic powder
    1 big heaping TBSP beef base, or you could use some good quality beef bullion
    1 TBSP very finely diced fresh or jar jalapenios
    1 can Rotel tomatoes
    1 can chili beans
    2 cans dark red kidney beans, drained
    1 can light red kidney beans, drained
    1 teaspoon Spike seasoning if you have it
    I add just a bit of rice flour to thicken, you could use whatever thickener you like, flour, cornstarch, etc.

    This way is efficient, no real prep time...
    I brown the beef med/high as I am getting other ingredients out (stirring occasionally) and then I chop the onion and add it.Chop bell pepper and add. Grate garlic and add. Chop tomatoes and add. Add all the other stuff and a little water, cook low for 1-3 hours.
