1 large Onion, chopped
1 large Green bell pepper, chopped
1 \N Clove garlic, minced

1 cup Commercial salsa
¼ cup Chopped fresh cilantro
2 \N Beef bouillon cubes
1 tablespoon Brown sugar

Combine the beef, pork, onion, green pepper and garlic. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large Dutch oven and cook half of the mixture over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until browned.

Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the meat is tender, about 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Serve the chili over hot cooked rice. Garnish with fresh sprigs of cilantro, if desired.

Makes 11 cups.
