1 can crushed tomatoes seasoned with basil and oregano
olive oil
1/2 cup Burgundy wine
4 cloves minced garlic

1 pound ground round or use ground turkey
1 teaspoon each dried oregano, parsley, basil, sugar
salt, pepper to taste
dash of cayenne
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 chopped celery
olive oil

In a large sauce pan add 3 tablespoons garlic, saute for 1 minute. Add the meat, celery, peppers for another 3 minutes until the pink is gone from the meat, drain most of the oil out. Add the sauce, herbs, seasonings to taste, Worcestershire sauce, sugar. Stir in beans. Simmer on low for 2 hours or the lowest settings or use a crockpot for 4 to 6 hours. Serve with shredded cheddar, mexican blend or your favorite shredded cheese and sour cream. Great with tortilla chips crushed up too!
