  2. Once your meat is cooked through (no more pink) drain and set aside.

  4. Now add your meat mixture to the veggie saute and turn heat down to low.
  5. Now add the rest of the ingredients except for the beans: tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, water, and all of the spices. Cover and cook on low for about 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally.
  6. Once your chili is cooked and about 10 minutes before serving drain your can of black beans and your can of kidney beans and rinse them under running water. Add them to the chili and let them cook for about 10 minutes.
  7. Serve and ENJOY!!!
