Here's a recipe my mother passed along to my wife years ago. It was given to my mother by an employee at a TPS cafeteria. Enjoy!
1 lb. pinto beans
1 lb. coarse ground beef
1 2/3 cups tomato puree
Cook beans in three quarts water (or more depending on dryness of beans. When beans are nearly done, add 2 Tbsp. chili powder and 1 ½ Tsp salt. While beans are cooking, combine meat, onion and garlic and brown in skillet, stirring frequently.
Add 1 2/3 cups tomato puree, 1 Tbsp. chili powder, 1 Tbsp salt and bread crumbs Combine meat mixture and beans.
May add more water for thickness desired or chili powder to season as needed.
