By Fitness and Freebies
One of the best plain chilis you may ever eat. First make tasty burgers on the grill seasoned with garlic, pepper, cumin and chili powder. Then crumble those and build and cook chili!
2 pounds of lean ground beef
1 bell pepper
6 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
Fresh ground pepper to taste
3 tablespoons cumin, or to taste
1-1/2 tablespoon chili powder, or to taste
1 can tomatoes (28-32 ounce)
Light coals in grill. While coals are setting, 30-45 minutes, form ground beef into large patties. Clean, deseed, and chop the pepper. Mince garlic. In a large deep-shouldered skillet, heat olive oil, milling in fresh pepper to taste. Add bell pepper and saute 5-7 minutes. Turn heat off and stir in minced garlic.
Grill patties over coals until medium rare, no more than 5 minutes on each side. Turn heat on high under skillet and place patties in skillet with garlic, oil, and pepper mixture. Break up patties into small pieces with spatula and brown meat thoroughly. Add tomatoes. Mash and break up tomatoes with spatula, and mix in thoroughly. Add enough water to cover all ingredients, reduce heat to low, and let simmer 2 hours or more.
