Gather ingredients; to make it easier.
Dice onion, bell pepper and mince garlic. (I was already prepared as you can see)
Heat large pot or deep skillet and add olive oil.
First, I cook my seasoning (my go-to trinity). Let this cook for about 3 minutes on medium high heat.
Then I push my trinity to the sides of the skillet to make way for my meat.
Add in meat. Cook until brown.
Stir meat and seasoning together as cooks to make sure all meat is browned. Here is when you add additional seasonings; add salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper.
Next add tomatoes, beans and chili seasoning. Yes, just dump it all in!
Stir until all mixed in.
