Mrs. Carroll's Cha Cha Chili

I got this recipe off of

1 tbsp. olive oil
1 lb. ground sirloin
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
2 jalapeno peppers, chopped {optional…I used ‘em, of course!}
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped {pressed}
1 tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 {15 oz.} can of black beans
1 {15 oz.} can of pinto beans
1 {10 oz.} can of Rotel {we used mild, but next time we’ll use HOT!}
Salt & pepper to taste
Shredded cheddar or monterrey jack cheese
In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add beef and cook for 7-10 minutes. Add onion, garlic, chili powder, cumin, & jalapenos and cook over medium low heat for 5 minutes. Add beans {DON’T drain!} and Rotel. Bring to a simmer and cook for 25-30 minutes, covered {stirring often}. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper. Top with cheese and Fritos and ENJOY!! I promise you will!!!
