Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large skillet cook ground beef, celery, onion, and garlic over medium heat until meat is brown, stirring to break up meat as it cooks. Drain off fat.

  • Add butter beans, undrained tomatoes, tomato sauce, sweet pepper, jalapeno pepper, Worcestershire sauce, basil, oregano, hot pepper sauce, and black pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 to 15 minutes or until desired consistency.


Tip: Because chile peppers, such as jalapenos, contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands well with soap and warm water.
