Mama's Chili Con Carne (or Con Elote)...

Every time I make this chili, my little ones ask for seconds and I get requests for the recipe.  My mother used to make it for us as children and we cheered when she did!  Enjoy!

2 medium onions, chopped
2 green bell peppers, chopped
1 pound of ground beef
2 cans of black beans, rinsed and drained
2 cans of sweet corn 
1 large can of vegetarian baked beans
1 16oz can of tomato puree
1 16oz can of chopped tomatoes
3 tablespoons of chili powder
shredded cheese
sour cream 
tortilla chips

Chop onions and peppers and saute with ground beef until the meat is no longer pink.  Add the black beans, corn, baked beans, tomato puree, chopped tomatoes and chili powder to the pot.  Stir thoroughly.  Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low and allow to simmer for 30 minutes or more.  Serve in a bowl topped with shredded cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and a handful of tortilla chips!

**To make vegan, simply omit the ground beef and saute the onions and peppers with a bit of oil.  Top with guacamole instead of cheese and sour cream.
