I had a hankering for some chili the other day and this is what I came up with:

1 lb grass fed ground beef
1 white onion
2 cloves of garlic
1 can of tomatoes with sweet onions
1 can garbanzo beans
1 can pinto beans
1 can mild chili beans
1 green bell pepper
1 orange/yellow bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
a few shakes Lawry's Season Salt
a pinch of cumin

Start browning the beef in skillet and add chopped onions and garlic when the beef is half way cooked.Add a few shakes of Lawry's season salt and a touch of cumin. In a small stock pot, add chopped peppers, tomatoes and all the beans. I drained the garbanzo beans but used the liquid from the other beans and the tomatoes. For more flavor, add more Lawry's season salt and cumin to the pot. Begin cooking the mixture. When the beef is done, add it to the chili mixture and let it simmer for about 20-30 minutes. I cooked some macaroni to make it a meal. With a little cheese or crackers, this is a great meal to freeze!
