  • 6  cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 - 4  jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2  tablespoons  chili powder

1. In a Dutch oven brown beef over medium heat; drain off fat. Add onions, garlic, and peppers to pan; cook about 5 minutes or until almost tender. Add the chili powder and cumin; cook for 1 minute, until fragrant. Add tomato sauce and water; bring to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes.

From the Test Kitchen
  • Because hot chile peppers, such as jalapenos, contain volatile oils that can burn 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 touch the peppers, wash your hands well with soap and water.
