Chili Con Carne

I found this recipe in Parents magazine and it looked so delish, so I figured I'd give it a shot.
It is the perfect dish to make on a cold wintry day.

You will need:
1 Tbsp EVOO
1 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1-15 oz. can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1-15 oz. kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1-14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes (undrained)
crushed tortilla chips
chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
shredded cheddar cheese

To make:
Put oil in a large pot over medium heat.
When it's hot, add beef, onion, and pepper.
Cook and stir until meat has lost its pink color and onion is soft; drain off fat.
Stir in garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano and cook for 1 minute more.
Add beans and tomatoes.
Bring to a boil, then reduce temperature and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes have begun to break down and the flavors have melded, about 15 minutes.
Serve with chips and garnish with cheese and cilantro (optional).
Makes 4-6 servings.
