  1. In a large pot over medium heat add half the butter and the ground beef breaking it into larger chunks to keep the crumbles bigger and meatier cooking until you have a good sear on the beef, a nice golden brown (don't rush this or stir too often).

  2. Remove the ground beef and add in the rest of the butter along with the onions, bell peppers, salt and pepper and cook them until they are softened and translucent, about 3-5 minutes.

  3. Add the pinto beans, mushrooms, tomato paste, chili powder, beef stock and Worcestershire sauce and stir well.

  4. Bring it up to a boil, reduce to a simmer (low heat) and cook for 25 minutes then serve with cubes of velveeta in the bowl and on top.
