  1. Prepare the roasted red peppers by draining and chopping. Prepare the black beans by draining and rinsing.
  2. On the stovetop, preheat a large pot to medium heat. When heated, add the ground beef and cook, stirring to break it into crumbles. Cook the beef, stirring as needed, until it is no longer pink.
  3. Add the chili powder and the black pepper to the cooked ground beef and stir.
  4. Add the roasted red peppers, black beans, chili beans, diced tomatoes with chiles, chopped olives, and tomato sauce, and stir.

  6. Serve hot in bowls.
