Simple chili con carne

Cold weather is around the corner. Actually, here in Idaho it's already here. My garden is frozen, and leaves are falling everywhere. It's good time for thick soups, stews, chilis, etc.

This is a chili I've made for years. It's really simple and healthy. I like to serve it with shredded cheese, lettuce, green onions, tomatoes and olives on top. Mmmm!

Simple Chili Con Carne

1/2 lb lean hamburger
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 c. canned tomatoes
2 15-oz cans kidney, pinto or black beans
1 6-oz can tomato paste
1/4 c. water
1 T. chili powder
1 bay leaf

Brown hamburger, onion and pepper. Drain. Add remaining ingredients and cover. Simmer for 20 minutes.

Makes: 6 servings
