Lone Star Chili

Sunday we went to Lone star and I got chili as a side. Well after tasting it I knew instantly this was the most amazing recipe for chili I had ever had and Ive had quite a few chilis. I found the recipe for chili and we made it last night for dinner and I just have to say its mighty close. The tomato sauce really makes a huge difference in this recipe.

1.5 lb ground beef
1 diced onion
1 15 oz. chili beans with liquid
1 28 oz. crushed tomatoes
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 cup water
1 tbsp. white vinegar
1 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tbsp olive oil

Optional garnishments
grated cheddar cheese

canned whole jalapeno chili peppers

1. Brown ground beef in a large saucepan over medium heat. Drain fat.
2. Add diced onion and olive oil and saute for about 3-4 minutes.
