You know a recipe's a keeper when all your friends at dinner not only compliment you on the chili, but keep complimenting you on it all night!  I forgot how easy chili is to make and this is one of the easiest chili recipes out there.  Coming from my mother-in-law, I should have known!

Kathy’s Chili
Makes 12 servings

2 pounds ground beef
1 clove garlic, diced
2 large onions, chopped
2 cans diced tomatoes (15 oz)
2 cans tomato sauce (15 oz)
1.5 Tbs chili powder
2 Tbs sugar
1 Tbs salt
4 15 oz cans chili/pinto beans
1 tsp cayenne pepper (for extra hot)

Cook ground beef , onions, and garlic, until meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain grease.

In large pot, combine tomatoes, sauce, beans with juice, and seasonings. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer 2 hours uncovered. Simmer stirring occasionally, until desire consistency.

Serve with shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, and Fritos

Note:  Feeling lazy or don't have the right spices?  Buy a packet of chili seasoning instead and skip the recipe seasonings.  This is great to make in bulk for large parties, or freezing some for later.
