  • 2 or 3 small cans tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cups chili powder
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • Tiny dash cayenne pepper
  • 1 can Ranch style beans


  1. Brown meat together with onion.
  2. When thoroughly cooked, drain meat in colander; rinse thoroughly with hot water to remove grease. Return mixture to large kettle; add water. Add whole tomatoes, cutting or squishing into bite size pieces. Add tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin, salt, cayenne and pepper. Stir well.
  3. Last of all, add beans with juice. Adjust flavor. If too hot, add 1 to 2 teaspoons sugar.
