Chili in a Flash (About 10 Minutes)

Sometimes you can take your sweet time lovingly crafting a meal for your family...and then there are nights like this past Thursday night - happens at our house a lot. The seasonings and veggies here produced an exceedingly mild chili, which happens to be exactly how my husband and 4-year old like it. If you like heat, I suggest adding some seeded and chopped green chile peppers and a generous amount of chili pepper.

Chili in a Flash
Serves 4 generously

2 lb. grass fed ground beef (I got mine at Trader Joe's)
1 lb. small diced variety of veggies (I used Trader Joe's Healthy 8 chopped veggie mix)
12 oz. (half a large jar) tomato sauce of choice (I used my beloved Victoria)
1/2 tbsp. cumin
1/2 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 heaping teaspoon salt
(Note: adjust seasonings as desired)

As desired, to top:
Sour cream (whole fat, of course!)
Shredded cheese

In a large saucepan, combine ground beef and veggies on medium-high heat. (Do not drain the fat as it cooks.) Stir in seasonings, and lastly the sauce. Allow to simmer until veggies are barely tender and the beef is just barely cooked, about 10 minutes. Serve hot and garnish as desired.
