                         Kitchen
    5       lb           Ground beef -- lean
    5       lg           Onion -- chopped
   40       oz           Tomato puree -- can
   15       oz           Tomato paste -- can
   30       oz           Kidney beans -- rinsed & drain
    2 1/2   qt           Water -- or more
   10       tb           Chili powder
    2 1/2                Garlic -- to taste
                         Oregano
 
   SAUTE THE ONION in a non-stick pan, or in a little
   butter until tender. If you want the chili hot, saute
   with the chili powder. When the onions are limp, add
   the beef, and brown, breaking up with a spoon. (Drain
   if you like). Add puree, paste, chili powder if you
   didn't brown it, beans, and 16 oz. water. And salt &
   pepper if you like it. Cover and simmer over low heat
   for 2 hrs., stirring occasionally.
    Add more water if it gets too thick. Good served over
   mashed potatoes. You may need more water, depending on
   the cooking temperature. And you can adjust the amount
   of chili powder to taste. And you can add spices of
   your choice. This is an easy dish for camping.
