Meaty Chili

1 onion
some red, green, yellow, orange and green pepper
ground beef
fresh mushrooms
a couple of envelopes of beef OXO
seasoned salt
garlic powder
soya sauce
28 oz tin of diced tomatoes
28 oz tin of kidney beans
12 oz peaches and cream corn
8 oz tin of tomato paste
1 cup ketchup
worchestershire sauce
2 tbsp chili powder

I lightly grease my frying pan and put it on to warm while I chop up the onion, mushrooms and peppers. I just use a small section of each kind of pepper, not whole peppers. I throw all this into the frying pan with the minced meat and sprinkle with oxo envelopes, seasoned salt, pepper, garlic powder, and soya sauce. I cook this until the beef is nice and brown.

Meanwhile, in a big pot I throw in the diced tomatoes and then I mash them, because we don't like big chunks of tomato in it. Once the tomatoes are mashed I throw in the kidney beans, corn, tomato paste, ketchup, chili powder and a sprinkle of worchestershire sauce. Then I stir it all together.

When the meat is well browned I drain it and then throw it into the big pot with the tomato mixture. I often then sprinkle some more garlic powder, seasoned salt and pepper and maybe even more chili powder to taste. I leave this on the stove simmering for about half an hour or so.

***This is my personal adapation of a recipe from Company's Coming Lunches, a recipe book well worth buying. There are lots of wonderful recipes in there.
