  Vegetable oil 2 Tablespoon
  Yellow onion 1 Medium, chopped
  Sweet green pepper 1 Medium, cored
  Lean ground beef 1 Pound
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), peeled and minced
  Tomato sauce 16 Ounce (2 Cans, 8 Ounces Each)

Directions

1. Heat the oil in a heavy 3-quart saucepan over moderate heat for about 1 minute. Add the onion, green pepper, beef, and garlic, and cook, uncovered, stirring frequently, for 7 or 8 minutes, or until the onion is soft and the beef has browned.
2. Add the tomato sauce, cumin, cayenne pepper, chili powder, oregano, and salt. Cover, reduce the heat, and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 2 or 3 tablespoons of water if the mixture becomes too thick.
3. Stir in the beans, cover, and simmer for 5 more minutes, or until the beans are heated through. Serve with a green salad.
