DIRECTIONS

  • Cook ground beef and onions over medium heat in a large sauce pan or dutch oven until beef is browned and onions are tender. Drain and return to pan.
  • Add tomatoes and kidney beans (do not drain off juce).
  • Add spices and stir until blended.
  • Bring to boil, then reduce to low heat, cover and simmer for 30-45 minutes.
  • You can taste and adjust spices after 20-30 minutes - add more chile powder or a bit of cayenne pepper if you like it spicier - let it simmer another 20 minutes to blend flavors.
  • Serve in bowls with shredded cheese, onions, sour cream or crackers if desired. I like it with saltines broken into the chile with a little cheese on it.
