Homemade Chili

1 lb. hamburger
1 large green pepper
1 large onion

1 large can or bottle of V8 juice or vegetable juice
1 can diced tomatoes, chili ready
1 can kidney beans, drained
1 can pinto beans, drained
2 cans chili beans, in chili sauce, do not drain
3-4 TBSP chili powder
salt and pepper to taste

Brown the meat with diced up pepper and onion until the pepper and onion are cooked. Next add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer for an hour. Make sure to let this cook for at least an hour for all the ingredients to blend together. You can also let this cook in a crock pot on low for several hours after you do the first step of browning the meat, pepper, and onion. Top with shredded cheese and fritos chips if desired. I also like to serve this with cornbread.
