Mom's Easy Chili

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Escamilla06

My mom has made this chili for as long as I can remember, and now it's my husband's favorite! It goes a long ways so that makes it even better! We usually add about 4 tablespoons of chili powder, plus about 1-2 Tablespoon cumin.

Made for Spring PAC 2008. This was good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I used onion powder instead of onions and I erred on the side of caution and used the lesser amounts of cumin and chili powder. I did like it better the next time with some cheddar cheese on top.
