1/2 small onion - diced
1 Lb ground beef
1 - 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes (undrained)
1 - 15.5 oz can chili beans (undrained)
3 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
Brown the ground beef with the diced onion in a fry pan until no pink remains in the meat. Drain off any grease. Place the cooked ground beef and onions in a crockpot. Add the can of tomatoes and the can of chili beans. Finally add the spices and stir everything well to combine. You can cook the chili on low anywhere from 3 hours to 8 hours.
You can also make this in a deep fry pan instead of a crockpot. After draining the grease off your meat, simply add the rest of the ingredients and let it simmer on the stovetop for a while to let the flavors mingle.
You can garnish with some shredded cheese or sour cream when serving too.
If you want a little more heat you could add some cayenne or some red pepper flakes. Sometimes I use a little less chili powder and a little more cumin and that combo has been tasty too. When you Make Your Own you can tweak the recipe until you find the perfect fit for you!
