No Tomato Chili Con Carne Y Frijoles

1 1/2 lb Lean ground beef
3 cl Garlic; minced
1 md Onion; diced
1 md Bell pepper; diced
1 Jalepeno pepper; minced (optional)
3 tb Flour
1 tb Oregano
1 tb Paprika
1 tb Cumin
3 tb Chili powder; more as needed
1/2 ts Black pepper
1 Cayenne pepper; to taste
1 Salt; to taste
4 c Beef broth or stock
2 cn Pinto or red beans, drained
8 Soda crackers; crushed

Brown meat in dutch oven or heavy pot. Drain excess grease and add garlic, onion and pepper, sauteeing until slightly softened.

Add flour, stirring and scraping pan until very lightly browned; add all seasonings and mix thoroughly.

Add 4 cups broth or stock, or 4 cups water and 4 boullion cubes. Bring to a boil and simmer about 45 minutes.

Add beans and bring back to a simmer, cooking long enough to heat beans through, about 10 minutes. Add sufficient cracker crumbs for desired consistency, being careful not to over thicken.

Chili is better if allowed to sit for several hours to overnight for flavors to blend, reheating if necessary.

Adjust all seasonings to taste.

Freezes very well.
