This recipe was clipped out of a magazine. A non-traditional version of chili that I thought was delicious. You can adjust the amount of spiciness to your taste. I prefer mine mild to moderately spicy. Add cayenne, red pepper flakes, or hot sauce if you prefer.

- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced

- 1⁄2 cup water
