I was looking for a Chili that wouldn't be so spicy but still would have great flavor. This is what I came up with. It is flavorful and you can spice it up, make it vegetarian, substitute turkey for the beef. It is a very versatile recipe.
Chili
INGREDIENTS

2 lbs lean ground beef *(for Vegetarian substitute 1 can black beans, 1 can navy beans, drained and rinsed)

1 onion diced

1 can pinto beans (drain and rinse)

1 can kidney beans (drain and rinse)

1 bag frozen corn

1 lg jar red sofrito by Goya

2 cans diced tomatoes

1 pack of taco seasoning

1 tbsp cumin

1 tbsp chili powder

1/2 tsp oregano

1/8 tsp chili flakes or to taste

Salt, pepper and ground cayenne to taste (you can make it as hot as you like)
Instructions
Brown ground chuck and onion drain fat and all other ingredients. Add water if you think it needs it and let simmer for a while. If you want a thicker sauce, thicken it with a little corn starch slurry. I simmered mine for about 4 hours on low.
*If doing vegetarian version, brown onion in 2 tbsp olive oil then add all other ingredients.
