- 1/2 lb ground beef
- 1 - 2 cans beans (Great Nothern, Pinto, Chili, whatever kind you like)
- 2 cans tomato sauce
- chili powder to taste
Boil ground beef in water for about 10 mins or until done. Drain. Break apart using a potato masher or fork. Add ground beef and all other ingredients to a large pot. Simmer. The longer this cooks, the more the spices blend, but this can be eaten once it has heated through (approx. 10 minutes).
Jiffy conbread mix (the kind you can get in small boxes at 3 for $1) is slightly sweet, easy to make, and goes great with chili. Follow direction on box.
If you like less beans, use 1 can.
If you like tomatoes, add 1 can - sliced, chopped, or whole - tomatoes.
