Sunday Night Chili

I have never been a big chili fan. Not sure why. Tonight I have changed my opinion. This was a delicious dinner. Perfect for a crazy cold day.

My version of Sunday Night Chili recipe is from RealSimple.com

Ingredients -
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, chopped, plus more for serving
2 red bell peppers, chopped
kosher salt and black pepper
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1/4 cup tomato paste
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
3 14.5-ounce cans diced tomatoes
1 15.5-ounce can pinto beans, rinsed
1 15.5-ounce can black beans, rinsed

Directions -
Heat the oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion, bell peppers and ¼ teaspoon each salt and black pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 12 to 15 minutes.

Add the beef, increase heat to medium-high, and cook, breaking up the beef with a spoon, until no longer pink, 8 to 10 minutes. Add the tomato paste, chili powder and cumin and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.

Add the tomatoes (with their juices), beans, ½ cup water, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon black pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 25 to 30 minutes.
