Chili for a Cold Day!

Brown approximately 2 pounds of ground meat with a small onion finely chopped. Add 2 or 3 cans of tomato sauce, 1 can of Rotel, 1 package of store brand Chili seasoning mix, 1 can of beans of your choice (Kidney, Pinto, Red, or Ranch Style all work well), and liberally sprinkle with chili powder. Dad adds a little bit of brown sugar. If you want it hotter, use a second can of Rotel or buy the hotter version of Rotel. Add enough water to make it the desired consistency and let it simmer for a while. If you get it too thin, you can bring it to a rolling boil and pour in a mixture of flour and cold water. This will thicken the juice.
