A flavorful and hearty pinto bean chili.
I came up with this recipe after trying different recipes I found. I decided to make my own version because none of them were quite what I wanted. Result is a family favorite. Serve with homemade quick rolls.....mmm-mmm good."

2 large green peppers, chopped
