1/2 cup green peppers, chopped

1/2 to 1 jalapeno pepper, chopped

1/2 cup onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons chili powder

1 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1 1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 can (8 ounce) tomato sauce

1 cup beef broth

1. Brown beef in a large deep pan.  Drain fat.  Add the peppers, onion and garlic and cook until tender. Add, chili powder, and cumin, stirring to coat beef.

2. Add the tomato sauce and the beef broth and bring to a boil.

3 Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 1 hour (add some water if your heat is too high and chili gets too thick). 4. Adjust seasoning and enjoy!
