In the stockpot or large sauce pot, cook the meat until it is almost all the way cooked. Drain excess fat.

Mix together in a small bowl the seasoning mix

Add in the seasoning mix and stir well to combine.
Bring to a simmer over medium heat and reduce heat to low - medium low. Allow to gently simmer stirring occasionally for about 30 minutes.
Add in the kidney beans and stir to combine. Cook for about 5 minutes before serving.
We serve it over rice, but you can serve it plain as well. We also top it with cheese and sometimes sour cream.
Nutrition facts and serving sizes are estimated. You may need to adjust the amount of salt to taste. Chili powder has salt in it and so does the kidney beans if canned. Tomatoes also have salt in the can if you are not using no salt added. Adjust the salt as you feel you need it.The small amount of cayenne here will not make it spicy. If you want it spicy, you will want to add more to taste or even add some fresh hot peppers. It is written here for a mild version.
