Why I Love This Recipe

This was passed down to me from my Mom and is so great on a cold day! Great for feeding a crowd too.

Ingredients You'll Need

3-1/2 lbs of beef cubes (I usually buy more though)
½ cup – chopped onion
3 medium green peppers – chopped
4 cloves of garlic – chopped
2 – 28 oz. cans of crushed tomatoes (not in puree)
1 – 12 oz. can tomato paste
2 cups of water
1 small can of chili powder
¼ cup sugar
2 tablespoons – salt
2 teaspoons – oregano
¾ teaspoons – pepper
Monterey Jack Cheese


Cut meat into bite size pieces and brown in oil.

Remove meat, brown pepper, garlic and onion – about 10 minutes.

Add oil if necessary.

Return meat to pot, add tomatoes, liquids, etc.

Heat to boil.

Simmer 1-1/2 hours (but the longer is simmers the better it gets).

Serve with french bread, shredded cheese, sour cream and any other toppings you like.
