Dice the green pepper and onion into small pieces.
In a large saucepan, saute the green pepper, onion, and ground beef until the beef is browned.
Meanwhile, add the stewed tomatoes, tomato paste, kidney beans and seasonings to a large pot or slow cooker. Mix well.
Once the meat has browned, drain, then add the meat and veggie mixture to the other ingredients. Stir, stir and stir some more until all ingredients are completely combined.
If cooking on the stovetop: bring to a boil, reduce heat, and allow to gently simmer for at least 1 - 2 hours. The longer it cooks, the better it tastes.If using a slow cooker: set it to low, and cook for 6 to 8 hours, stirring occasionally.
Once finished, serve with cheese, sour cream, and/or crackers, and enjoy!
