Chili with Leftover Burrito Meat

From: Jenn@eatcakefordinner

1-2 cups leftover shredded meat

    or you could use cooked ground beef, pork or turkey

1 tsp. olive oil

1/2 c. onion, finely chopped

1 c. celery, chopped

3/4 c. green bell pepper, finely chopped

1 can diced tomatoes, undrained

1 can chili beans, undrained

1 can black, pinto or kidney beans, undrained

2 tsp. ancho chili powder (or regular chili powder)

1 tsp. ground cumin

1 tsp. oregano

salt and pepper, to taste


  shredded Cheddar cheese

  sour cream

  chopped green onions


Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.  Add the onion, celery and green pepper and saute 5 minutes or until tender.  Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for as long as you have.  You can eat it right away, but it will taste better the longer it simmers and it is very good eaten as leftovers.  If it is too thick for your liking, add a little water.  Garnish with your favorite toppings.  Serves: 4-6
