  • 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (10-ounce) can diced tomatoes with mild green chilies
  • 1 (15.5-ounce) can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed (certified gluten-free if necessary)

Directions
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a medium-size skillet over medium heat, brown ground beef, and drain off any grease. Add tomato sauce, tomatoes with their juice, beans and spices. Stir well, and let mixture simmer for 5–7 minutes to let flavors meld.
