Ingredients

Directions

Put the chopped green peppers, chopped celery and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cover and saute for 20 minutes, stirring several times during the cooking. 

Chunk the ground beef with your hands and put it into a frying pan over medium heat. 

Add the chopped onions, and season with the salt and pepper, to taste. Cook until the meat has browned and is fully cooked, about 1/2 hour. In a large soup pot or kettle, add the beef and onions, celery and peppers, the chili powder, diced tomatoes with juice, chili sauce, kidney beans with all the juice, the 1/4 cup salt and 1/4 cup of pepper. Stir to combine, then bring to a boil over medium heat. Lower the heat, cover, and simmer the chili for 45 minutes. 

It will lose its chunkiness and mellow in flavor the longer you cook it. Keep it on all day, if you like, stirring it from time to time. 

Serve in a large bowl garnished with grated Cheddar and freshly chopped onions. Add your favorite pepper sauce for some heat.
