To make two big portions or three small:
1/2 lb ( ~250 g) ground beef
7 jalapenos or hot chilies (I don't think anyone sane uses this many but we do!)
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1/2 bulb (or 2-3 cloves) garlic, chopped
2 tsp tomato paste
2 cans of diced tomatoes (keep liquid)
2 tsp basil
2-3 bay leaves
1 medium can corn
1 can kidney beans
salt, pepper and cayenne pepper to taste
In a large pot on the stove cook the ground beef with the onions, garlic, tomato paste and bell pepper .
Once browned, add chilies, diced tomatoes and seasonings.
Cover and cook for about 20 minutes on medium to medium-low. About 15 minutes in, add the kidney beans and corn. Let finish cooking and if needed add salt, pepper and cayenne pepper.
Serve hot and HOT!
