  • 2 medium green peppers, chopped
  • 3 celery ribs, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder

Directions

  1. In a Dutch oven, cook the beef, onions, peppers and celery over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the Cajun seasoning, chili powder and pepper; cook 2 minutes longer.
