Step 1: Prepare Vegetables
2 onions, chopped
handful hot peppers, chopped
3-4 stalks celery, chopped
2 red peppers, chopped'
2 carrots, finely chopped
Add the above ingredients to a large oiled pot, and stir over medium heat.
Step 2: Add Meat and Beans
So, add your meat: chop chunks of meat, shread cube steak, or just dump in ground meat. Here I'm manually shredding the cube steak.
Dump in 2-3 cans of beans. I've used black and pinto for this chili.
Step 3: Add Tomatoes and Seasonings
Add a big handful of chopped garlic , lots of chili powder, and some oregano, then simmer for a while to cook off the extra tomato water. Check and stir as necessary.
When it's cooked down sufficienty, add a big handful of chopped cilantro.
Step 4: Season and Serve
Serve hot, with a big pile of grated cheese for topping.
