Directions

  1. Place the tomatoes in a large pot and squash them with your hands. Add the beans, onion, banana chile pepper, sugar, garlic powder and chili powder and simmer for about 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a separate large skillet over medium high heat, saute the ground beef for 5 to 10 minutes, or until browned and crumbly. Drain the fat and add the beef to the simmering pot. Stir in the cheese, if desired. Allow to simmer for 1 more hour.

I changed 3 things first I used Butterball ground Turkey instead of beef. It was Turkey Tuesday after all. I had black beans so that is what I used. I chose sharp cheddar shredded over American cheese slices and since it said stir in if desired and I didn't desire I topped the bowl of chili with the cheese instead. The flavor was very good, there was a little kick but nothing so hot that you have trouble eating it. I will make this again it was quick and easy and very little prep work or cleanup.
