    Place the ingredients in the order listed into the bread machine and run the dough cycle. When finished, lightly knead the dough on a clean and floured surface. Divide the dough into 6 equal parts and form into the shape of a ball. Let rise for about 30 minutes in a warm place. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Let cool slightly before cutting the tops out with a bread knife.

    In a large saucepan, brown the ground beef with the red onion and garlic. Drain and return to the pan.

    Add the stewed tomatoes, and Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilies, pinto beans and chili powder. Let simmer for 20-30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
