This is a basic recipe that you can easily add to. We, however, like it just like this.
1 lb ground beef (venison, or turkey)
1 large onion
1 tsp salt
3 Tbsp Chili powder
2 Tbsp AP flour
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, liquefied (put it in a food processor and give it a good whirl)
1 cup water
1 can pinto beans, no need to drain (I like Luck's)
Brown the ground beef and onion together in a large pot. Drain, rinse if desired. Return to pot.
Reduce heat. Add all remaining ingredients and cook slowly for 45 minutes.
