  1. In a large saucepan, cook ground beef, onion, bell pepper, and garlic until meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain fat.
  2. Stir in un-drained tomatoes, kidney beans, tomato sauce, chili powder, basil, and pepper.
  3. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

Cook's Note

20 minutes is the minimum time for this chili to be cooked. A low simmer for an hour or more is acceptable to allow the flavors to mingle. Stir occasionally to keep from sticking.
