1 1/2 pounds chili meat, hamburger, or like me...tiny cubes of beef
1 cup onions
4 tblsp tomato paste
6 tblsp chili powder
1 tblsp ground cumin
1/2 to 1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 1/2 tsp paprika....don't use the cheapest
3/4 tsp garlic powder
couple cups of your fav beans I use cannellini
1/2 cup water
in a large pot/Dutch oven whatever
saute the meat with the onions till the onions are transparent and the meat is browned.
Add the tomato paste and all the spices and water, stir well.
On Med/low heat simmer for about 15. Add the beans and put a lid on it and simmer for about 30 minutes more. Add more water if needed...
Great served over rice with some onion, cheese and sour cream...
