Really Red Chili

I posted my chili recipe yet I decided vamp it up a bit. Instead of sautéing the onions-beef and then put that and vegetables and seasonings in the crock-pot, I decided to do the classic one-pot meal using my dutch oven for about an hour on medium heat and the final half hour to low heat. I also omitted some veggies and kept it less by simply peppers and beans along with the sauce
I thought it would be cool to use red everything: 
-red onion
-8 red jalapeño peppers, seeded and ribs taken out
-2 red bell peppers, seeded and ribs taken out
-1 medium can of red beans, drained
-tomato paste
-1 medium can of tomato sauce (add water if it gets too thick)

The only things that weren't red was the garlic, butter, EVOO, dried Italian herbs and fresh cilantro (stirred in at the end).
Like my original chili recipe, I used McCormick's chili seasoning as well as my own with chili powder, cumin, and cinnamon (yes, you read that right- cinnamon. But a small palm full)
