3.  Add a pinch of the chili seasoning mix over the beef, onion, garlic and bell          peppers.

4. I love to add a 1/2 cup of beef broth to the pot for more flavor and to make it slurpy.

5. Let all of this cook for about 5 mins then add 1 16 oz can of pinto beans, 1 16 oz can of black beans, 1 16 oz can of kidney beans and 1 16 oz can of  tomato sauce, and chili seasoning into the pot.
