  • 1 green pepper chopped

  • 1 can tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 2 tablespoons water
DIRECTIONS
  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in large saucepan on medium-high heat. Add beef; brown on all sides. Remove beef; set aside. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in saucepan. Add onion; cook and stir 3 minutes.
  2. Stir in browned beef, spices and remaining ingredients. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 1 to 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  3. Mix flour and water until smooth. Slowly stir into chili. Simmer 15 minutes or until desired thickness. Serve with shredded cheese and chopped onion, if desired.
  4. *** I cooked it in the crock pot and it was the desired thickness I wanted so I didnt need the flour mixture. I cooked it on low for 6 hours.
