A great, easy chili recipe.  Easy to make and even better to build upon with your own delicious additions:

1 lb ground beef
4 cups diced tomato (or about 2-3 cans)
3 cups tomato sauce
1 green pepper (chopped)
1 large onion, chopped
2 tablespoons Milford Spice Company Traditional Chili Powder

Brown meat, pepper, and onion in a pan over medium heat until meat is browned.  Drain fat.  Combine all ingredients in a stock pot and cook over low heat, approximately 45 minutes.  Stir occasionally.

Such an easy and versatile base - great additions include:

Additional chile peppers to taste - brown with the meat
A touch of chocolate, a splash of coffee to add depth (MSC's Mark's Espresso Rub is a nice addition too!)
Extra tomatoes, or one of my favorites - roasted tomatoes.  Sweet and delicious!
Serve with a dollop of sour cream, finely chopped onions and fine cheddar cheese.

Don't forget the corn bread on the side too!
