Mom's Chili

The Backbencher's mom makes the best chili; an impressive feat when you consider she lives in a climate that allows people to eat chili for about 3 weeks every year. She sent me the recipe this weekend and I made a pot. Liturgygeek said that it was teh awesome, and so I decided to share the recipe with you.

1 1/2 lb. of ground beef (or a combination of beef and sausage)
1 medium chopped onion
1 pkg. Chili-O seasoning
2 tsp. of cumin and paprika
1 tsp. of salt and pepper
1 can of stewed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and tomato paste
1 cup of water
1 can of chili beans and kidney beans
1 beef bouillon cube
5 tbs. of chili powder

Brown ground beef in a large pot. While browning meat chop the onion. When the meat is browned add the onion and then season with the Chili-O, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper. Add the tomatoes, sauce, paste, and water. Add the beans and the chili powder. Cook for at least 20 minutes, stirring often and adding more chili powder to taste if you so desire. Serve with tortillas, crackers, chopped onion, or cheese.
