Directions

  1. Brown the ground beef, onion, celery, carrots, and garlic in a large saucepan. Drain and rinse to reduce the fat content.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients, except for the salt and pepper. Mix well and add water if the chili is too thick. 
  3. Cook for about 10 minutes until the vegetables are cooked and the flavor has blended. Season with salt and pepper if needed.
