Bonnie's notes for this recipe:
Many years ago, I attended a fundraiser and they served this chili in little cups for a $1. I went bonkers over it! I bought three cups in a row, trying to figure out how they made it. I begged and begged for the recipe. Finally, to get rid of me, they gave it to me! You won't believe how easy it is to make and how good it tastes! You won't ever need another recipe for chili! Enjoy!

Brown the meat and onions in a large skillet. Add the seasonings, tomatoes, and tomato sauce. Simmer for about 15 minutes.
Add the cans of chili, stir, and simmer for about a half hour. If you allow it to sit overnight and let the flavors blend, it is awesome. I heat it up in the crockpot the next day. Great for get togethers! Enjoy!

The weather down here in Oklahoma has been real nice lately. Just hopes it stays that away.

For the Fall season so far. I've made a large stock pot full of chili and stew.
