"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Ingredients:  
For each pound of ground beef, use the following:
(I like to use 3 pounds of ground beef)

1 large onion, diced
1 (15 oz.) can of diced tomatoes
1 (8 oz.) can of tomato sauce
1 (15 oz.) can of kidney beans
1 T. minced garlic
1 T. worcestershire sauce
4 or 5 T. chili powder (to taste)
salt, black and cayenne pepper (to taste)

Directions:
Directions:
In a large iron pot, brown the ground beef, add onions and cook until clear and soft. Add worcestershire sauce and continue to brown the beef until all liquid is gone. Add tomatoes with liquid and tomato sauce, beans with liquid, garlic and reduce heat to simmer and add chili powder. Stir frequently to prevent sticking about every 10 minutes. Simmer until liquid is reduced - about 1 hour or so or until it is as thick as you like your chili.
