1 pound lean ground beef or turkey
2-4 cups kidney beans (or your favorite bean)
1 med. onion, chopped
1 med. bell pepper, chopped
1 T. minced garlic
3 T chili powder
1 large can stewed tomatoes (I use the kind that has peppers in it, but anything will work)
salt to taste
Brown your ground meat.
Add remaining ingredients.
Cover and simmer for 2 hours stirring every 30 minutes.
If crock-pot is used, high for 3 hours, low for 6 hours.
I serve with cheese sprinkled on top.
