My chili recipe

2 pounds lean ground beef
2 medium onions (chopped)
1 green pepper (chopped)
1 red pepper (chopped)
2 medium tomatoes (chopped)
8 to 10 fresh mushrooms (sliced)
1 19 oz can of tomatoes (I know this size is hard to find in the US.)
1 10 oz. tin tomato soup
1/2 14 ounce tin red kidney beans (I usually use the full can)
a smidgen of cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon sage
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
lots of pepper
grated cheddar cheese for garnish

1. Cook ground beef well and drain excess fat; set aside. In the same pan saute onions and mushrooms until tender; season with pepper to taste.

2. Combine beef, onion mixture, red and green peppers and tomatoes in large pot(Use a crockpot if bringing to a potluck). Add tinned tomatoes, soup, beans and spices.

3. Simmer to blend flavours; peppers should be tender and liquid evaporated to consistence you like. Check seasoning and serve with grated cheddar and a fresh roll/bread.

Serves 6.
