  • ¾ pound ground beef, chicken or turkey
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped fine
  • 1 package chili seasoning mix
  • 1 (15 ounces or larger) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained

Brown the meat in a large saucepan or skillet over medium heat. Discard any fat that accumulates on the bottom of the pan.

Add additional seasonings (ground black pepper, garlic powder, and/or chili powder) to taste. Reduce heat to low and simmer until flavors are blended -- about 5 minutes.
