Dutch Girl Chili

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!
