I found this on website www.pamperedchef.com

Instead of adding canned beans you can use your real ones!



Chunky Beef Chili

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

2 pounds beef chuck, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

2 large onions, chopped

2 celery stalks, chopped

2 garlic cloves, pressed

1 tablespoon ground cumin

1 tablespoon dried oregano leaves

1 tablespoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 can (28 ounces) whole tomatoes, undrained, cut up

2 cups water



Directions:

1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in Generation II Dutch (6-qt.) Oven over medium-high heat. Add half of the beef; cook, stirring occasionally with Bamboo Spoon, until meat is browned on all sides, about 8 minutes. Remove beef from Dutch Oven; set aside. Repeat with remaining oil and beef; remove beef after browning.



2. Add onions, celery, and garlic to pan juices in Dutch Oven; cook over low heat 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Return beef to Dutch Oven; add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered over low heat until meat is tender, 2-3 hours. Add additional water, 1/2 cup at a time, if neccessary to reach desired consistency.

I know you wanted dried beans, but it should be easy to adapt.



Homemade Chili in a Can



2 lbs. Ground Beef

1 onion diced

1 green pepper diced (I use frozen spaghetti veggies in lieu of onion and pepper)

3 Tbsp. Chili Powder

1 Tbsp. Cumin

2 tsp. crushed garlic



Brown ground beef, then add in veggies add spices. Cook for 5 minutes.



Add 1 can each:

tomatoes diced

tomatoes crushed

beans of your choice

baked beans with maple syrup

mushrooms



Heat through, then simmer for 30 minutes to 2 hours (the longer the better!).

I don't have a recipe for spaghetti sauce (that would include measurements any way) but I can tell you if you like (beef) meatballs cook them directly in your sauce for extra flavor. A chef once told me a couple rules to cooking: 1) season as you go and 2) fat equals flavor.
