It's Chili Out!

I've made chili a few times this year already. 
Some batches tasted better than others...I made a huge pot on Saturday 
and it seemed to be a hit. 
Here's what went into the pot:

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
2 cans chili beans
1 can dark red kidney beans
1 can light red kidney beans
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 large can whole tomatoes (tomatoes cut into fourths)
1 box Carroll Shelby's Chili Mix 
1 chopped onion
*for extra oomph sometimes I add extra chili powder and/or cayenne pepper

After browing the meat, draining the cans of beans, (but not draining the cans of tomatoes), add all ingredients to a large pot, simmer on low for about an hour.

We serve ours with cheese, sour cream, oyster crackers and saltines.......oh and don't forget the corn bread!
