DIRECTIONS

  • In a large skillet, saute beef and onions together until beef is browned.
  • Drain beef and add to a large soup pot (this step can be skipped if you wish to brown the beef in the soup pot).
  • Add tomato juice and simmer over medium heat.
  • Add tomatoes (with their juice), crushing between fingers to break apart.
  • Add kidney beans, chili powder (the entire 4 tablespoons may be a bit much for some people, so start out small and add to taste), and optional hot sauce.
  • After mixture comes to a simmer, add baking soda (the baking soda will help cut down the acidity of the tomatoes).
  • Simmer for about 20-30 minutes, adding water if necessary to thin out the chili.
  • Taste for seasoning.
