Servings - 4 servings


  • 3/4 lb ground beef ($1.12)
  • 1/2 red onion diced ($.50)
  • 2 green peppers diced ($.66)
  • 15 oz can diced tomatoes ($.16)
  • 6 oz can tomato paste ($.19)
  • 2 cups cooked black beans ($.40)
  • 2 cups cooked red beans ($.40)
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed ($.10)
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder ($.10)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Tabasco or hot sauce optional
  • Serve with fresh fruit like 1/2 cantaloupe ($.67)


  • Brown the ground beef. Drain and return to saucepan.
  • Add diced red onion (or yellow, or white), diced green peppers, diced tomatoes (undrained), tomato paste (plus 1-2 cans worth of water), black beans, red beans, garlic cloves, chili powder and salt and pepper to taste. Add some Tabasco or hot sauce if you need a lil kick.
  • Bring to bubbling, then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. If you simmer longer, cover it so you don't lose too much moisture. Ladle into bowls and serve warm.
  • Cut cantaloupe into wedges or bite size pieces. I love the sweet, coolness of cantaloupe paired with a thick, hearty chili.
  • Serve Green Pepper Chili with Cantaloupe.
