Feel free to use about 3 cups of fresh cooked and drained beans in place of the canned beans.
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 large onion, quartered, sliced
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 pound ground round
1 can (14.5 ounces) tomatoes
1 can mild green chile peppers
1 to 2 teaspoons chopped jalapeno, optional
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
dash cayenne pepper, or to taste
2 whole cloves
1 small bay leaf
2 cans (15 ounces each) red beans, drained

In a large skillet or Dutch oven, brown the onion, pepper, and ground beef in oil. Add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, peppers, and seasonings. Cover and simmer over low heat for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, adding a little water if needed to keep from sticking. Check and stir frequently. Drain beans; rinse well. Add the beans and Continue cooking for 20 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.
