4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin

Heat the oil in a Dutch oven or soup pot over medium heat. Add the onions, bell pepper, salt and pepper; sauté for 4-5 minutes. Add the garlic, chili powder, cumin and oregano; cook an additional 2-3 minutes. Push the onion mixture to the sides of the pan. Add the ground beef with additional salt and pepper. Cook, while breaking down with a wooden spoon and browned. Drain any excess grease.

Add the diced tomatoes with their juices, tomato sauce and beans to the pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 25-30 minutes. Taste; add additional salt and pepper, if needed. Serve with desired toppings.
