Heat a medium large pot on medium high heat, add oil, then add onions and sweet pepper(not the jalapeno pepper yet), cook until soft, for about 5 minutes. Now add the ground meat. Continue to cook on medium high heat until meat cooked through.
Now add the corn, black beans, diced tomato with juices, 2 cups of tomato sauce, 1 cup of salsa, 3 tablespoons of chili powder, jalapeno(if using), agave syrup and salt. Mix well, bring up to a simmer then turn the heat down to low and continue to simmer for about 20 minutes. Taste and change the seasoning if you so wish.
Serve with a dollop of sour cream and shredded cheese, even some green onion is nice as a topping. You might also want to serve some fresh bread or buns.
