helpful tip


In a large Dutch oven, over medium heat add the ground beef. Using a spatula, break it into pieces cooking until browned, about 8 minutes. Remove any excess fat.

Add the chopped onion, bell pepper, and garlic to the Dutch oven. Cook over medium-low heat until soft and fragrant; about ten minutes.
