1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 pounds of ham­burger (It’s good with round steak cut into small chunks instead of ham­burger. If you use round steak you want to toss it in a half cup of pure ground chili powder to coat. Then add a couple of table­spoons of cook­ing oil to the skil­let to brown it with the onion and garlic. If you want to use a tastier cut of beef like a chuck roast follow instruc­tions for round steak but simmer it for three hours until it is tender. Adding a bottle of Negro Modelo to the sim­mer­ing liquid is very nice and completely optional.)
1/2 cup pure ground chili powder. This can be a com­bi­na­tion of hot and mild chili powder or all of one kind)
2 table­spoons ground cumin
1 tea­spoon to 3 table­spoons of red pepper flakes (to taste)
1 table­spoon oregano
1 tea­spoon salt
1/2 tea­spoon black pepper
4 to 5 cans of Hot Chili Beans or any com­bi­na­tion of pinto, black, chili, or kidney beans.
2 cans of tomato sauce
1 can of chipo­tle pep­pers in adobo sauce, chopped
3 cans of diced toma­toes with jalapenos
(If you can’t find these you can sub­sti­tute 3 cans of diced toma­toes and one small can of chopped jalapenos.)

1. Brown meat, onions, and garlic in a large skil­let. Remove from heat. Drain off fat.

2. Com­bine the chili powder, cumin, red pepper flakes, oregano, salt & pepper and stir into the meat until it is evenly coated. (If you use round steak omit the chili powder.) Place in a large kettle or crock pot.

3. Then add the rest of the ingre­di­ents and heat through. If this isn’t hot enough for you, add cayenne powder to taste.
