Award Winning Southfork Chili

This was a recipe originally made by my Grandma C. and it's been a favorite of our family ever since. I've made a few changes to the original recipe and recently won our church's chili cook-off with this recipe. :)

2 1/2# ground beef (I use less)
1 1/2 c. onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
cayenne pepper
2-3 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. oregano
2 tsp salt
2 cans beans (any kind - I usually use 1 black and 1 chili)
2 cans diced tomatoes, drained
1 12 oz. can corn
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
2/3 of a bunch of cilantro, chopped

Brown meat and onion together. Drain fat. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for about 1/2 hour. Freezes well and works great in crock pot.

You can serve over cornbread or wrapped in tortilla w/grated cheese, sourcream, and guacomole. We often just eat it as soup. :)
