1 tsp. ground cumin
1.4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 16 oz. jar salsa or taco sauce

Cook beef, bell pepper, and onion in a large saucepan over medium heat, crumbling the meat with a wooden spoon, until meat is browned, 8-10 minutes.
Add garlic, chili powder, cumin, and cayenne; cook until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Stir in salsa or taco sauce and water; bring to a simmer.
Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in beans and cook until heated through, about 1 minute.
