      1/3 tsp dried leaf oregano

      1/4 tsp garlic powder
      pinch black pepper
      pinch cayenne pepper
      Chili:
      1/2 lb ground beef, at least 85% lean

      sm can diced tomatoes with mild green chile peppers
      8-oz tomato sauce
      sm can black beans, undrained

      Topping Suggestions:

      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.
      In a medium sauté pan over medium heat, 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.

      Bring the chili to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes.
      Taste and add salt, as needed.
      Makes 2 generous servings, and the recipe can be doubled or tripled very easily.
