Laura's Chili

So, one of my amazing friends, Laura, has this blog called Health for the Heart, and she had posted this really yummy sounding chili. Well, I can now say that it not only sounds yummy, but it tastes really yummy too! Thank you so much for this chili recipe, Laura! My whole family ate it and enjoyed it! I will be making it again. Another one of my favorite recipes that Laura makes that I have posted is Roasted Red Pepper Alfredo Bake.

1 lb ground sirloin, ground buffalo, or ground turkey
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1/2 to 3/4 green bell pepper, chopped (I used a whole, small one)
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 can petite diced tomatoes
2 cans spicy chili beans
1 package taco seasoning (she suggests low sodium) or my homemade taco seasoning
1 tbsp hot sauce (optional) (I decided to use this after I took a picture of the ingredients, I used the taco bell hot sauce, and the chili was not too spicy for any of my kids)
1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional) (I chose to leave this out b/c my kids probably wouldn't eat it that spicy, but you could serve it on the side to sprinkle on top)Directions
1. Saute onion, bell pepper, and garlic until softened. Add meat and brown.
2. Add rest of ingredients, turn down heat, and simmer 30 minutes or more.
3. Serve over pasta (my choice), brown rice, or corn chips, or top with cheese (all optional)
