Serves about 10 with generous seconds.
Saute approximately 2# of lean ground beef or turkey
Add 1-2 finely diced onion, saute til translucent
Add about 3-4 cloves of finely sliced garlic, saute til fragrant
Add 3-4 cans of petite diced tomatoes (I use at least one fire roasted)
3 cans black beans or 2 cans black beans 1 can light red/pinto beans
Add 1 large drained can sweet (not creamed) corn
Season with cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, paprika, oregano to taste
Add cayenne pepper/red chili flakes or your fave hot sauce to taste
Simmer down a couple hours very low. If soupy, shake/sift a small amount of flour and whisk in to bind/thicken.
Serve with cornbread or rice or focaccia or any other thing to soak up the goodness. Freezes beautifully. I make this when I feel lazy, purists could use fresh tomatoes and uncanned beans (after soaking). I think there are better uses for fresh tomatoes and this comes out just fine.
