Easy to make and ooooh soooo hearty and satisfying.

This dish is full of protein and has veggies for added flavor and fibre...but sssshhh don't tell anyone!


Step 1: Sauteeing

sauté in a preheated large skillet: 1 chopped large onion

1 tbsp. vegetable oil

until softened, 1-2 min on med high heat

Step 2: Veggies

add to the pan: 1 shredded carrot

1 chopped celery rib

1/2 red pepper diced

1 birds eye pepper

Step 3: Meat

to the pan add 2lb ground beef + 2 Italian mild or hot sausages that have had their casings removed.

Add: 1 tsp salt or to taste

1 bay leaf

1 tbsp. chipotle powder

1 tsp. chili powder

1 tsp. tumeric

Stir to prevent scorching, when juices evaporate and the pan begins to sizzle (you will hear it)

Add: 1/2-3/4 cup red wine like burgundy, merlot, shiraz or pinot noir...whatever is your fave!

Cook on med. high for 10 min to reduce wine.
