      Camping or at home…this is easy and good!
      30-Minute Chili
      Seasoning Mix:
      3 tbs chili powder
      2 tbs dried minced onion
      1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
      1 tsp dried leaf oregano
      1 tsp sugar
      1/2 tsp garlic powder
      1/4 tsp ground black pepper
      1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
      1 1/2 lb ground beef
      14.5-oz diced tomatoes
      14.5-oz diced tomatoes with mild green Chile peppers
      8-oz can tomato sauce
      15-oz can black beans, un-drained
      salt, to taste
      In a small bowl or cup, combine the chili powder with the dried minced onion, cumin, oregano, sugar, garlic powder, and the black and cayenne peppers.

      Blend well and set aside. If planning for a camping trip, place in a baggie.
      In a Dutch oven or large sauté pan over medium heat (for camping, place it on the hottest part of the fire), brown the ground beef, turning and breaking up with a spatula as it cooks.
      Drain the ground beef well. Return the beef to the pan over medium heat.

      Add the chili seasoning mix and stir to blend.
      Add the 2 cans of tomatoes, tomato sauce, and un-drained black beans. Stir to blend ingredients.
      Bring the chili to a simmer.

      Reduce the heat to low and simmer (move Dutch oven to a cooler part of the fire), stirring occasionally, for 15 min.
      Taste and add salt, as needed.
      Makes 6 generous servings, and the recipe can be doubled or tripled very easily.
      Serve with a Tex-Mex cornbread or classic Southern cornbread, biscuits, crackers, or tortilla chips, along with shredded cheese and your favorite toppings.
      Topping Suggestions:
      shredded cheddar, cheddar-jack, or a Mexican blend of cheeses, sour cream, chopped green onion, chopped red onion, shredded lettuce, cilantro, guacamole, diced tomatoes
      Smile, its spring!
