    1      large         Onion -- chopped
    2                    Garlic cloves -- minced
    1      teaspoon      Oregano

    2      dashes        Liquid hot pepper sauce
                         Salt to taste
 
 Place meat, onion and garlic in a large heavy skillet or Dutch oven. Cook until
light colored. Add oregano, cumin, water, chili powder, tomatoes, hot pepper
sauce (more or less to taste), and salt. Bring to a boil, lowering heat, and
simmer for one hour. Skim off fat during cooking. AUTHOR'S NOTE: Even more fat
can be removed if chili is stored in refrigerator, allowing fat to rise to the
top and solidify, when it can be easily removed
