Ingredients:  
2 lb. hamburger
1 small to medium onion, chopped

Salt (I use Kosher), to taste

Directions:
Directions:
Brown hamburger, then add chopped onion.

In large pot, combine Brooks Chili Beans, tomatoes and browned hamburger/onion mixture. Take the 6-Gun Chili Mixin's and follow the instructions on the package, then add to pot. (Note: there are 3 pkgs in the 6-Gun Chili Mixin's, a small seasoning pouch for the "heat" (do not use the entire package -- add gradually), a large seasoning package for flavor and a white thickening powder. I do not use the white thickening powder). Stir and warm the mixture. Salt to taste.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is Mimi Troester's recipe. It's good on day 1 and better on day 2. I think the secret is two-fold --the Brooks Chili Beans and gradually adding the amount of "heat" you like from the smallest pouch in the 6-Gun Chili Mixin's.
