Chili with Beans and Ground Beef

Now that autumn is here, it is time to start cooking chili, stews, and soups. Today was ground beef and bean chili that is pretty simple to make. It especially helps if you used canned ingredients to move the preparation time along.
I start with these ingredients, the rest of the garden grown tomatoes, Kroger hot chili beans in two cans, a medium sized onion, 8 oz can of tomato sauce low sodium, chili powder, basil, 3 garlic cloves, and 96% lean ground beef from Wal-Mart. Brown the beef by breaking into to small pieces in skillet at medium-high heat and mix in diced onions and garlic. In a pot, combine beans, tomato sauce, can of water, chili powder, and basil. After beef is finished (all pink and red color is gone), dump the skillets contents into the pot and heat on medium heat for about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low-medium and cook covered for about 60 minutes. Pot chili ready to eat. Yum!
