Cheap and Easy and YUMMY Chili (for 2)

It has been a cool 70 degrees today, and around 50 degrees in the evenings here in South Eastern West Virginia. Weather like this makes me crave for Fall, and everything that comes with the Fall Season. I love a good, thick, spicy chili on cool evenings. This recipe is super fast and easy and can be whipped up in less than 1/2 an hour. It is also delicious, and to me, it tastes better than all those fancy chilis that cook all day and have 100 ingredients.

*1 package McCormick's chili seasoning (I like the HOT, but it IS HOT)
*1 lb Lean Ground Beef
*2 -15oz cans tomato sauce (or undrained crushed tomatoes)
*1 can kidney beans drained
*1 small onion - chopped
*1 bell pepper - chopped

1. In a large saucepan brown the beef adding the onions and peppers while cooking.
2. When beef is browned and veggies soft, add the dry McCormick's seasoning packet and stir.
3. Cook for 1 minute and then add both cans of tomato sauce.
4. Add kidney beans and cook for 5 minutes, or until hot.
5. Serve with shredded cheese, sour cream, and/or crackers!

Makes 4 small bowls or 2 large bowls.
