1 Tbsp dried minced Onion
1 Tbsp dried minced Garlic
2 tsp Sugar
2 tsp ground Cumin
2 tsp dried Parsley
2 tsp Salt
1 tsp dried Basil
1/4 tsp ground Black Pepper

1 lb. Ground Hamburger (can omit or sub other meats)

SEASONING: Combine all ingredients. Store in an air-tight container.

In sautee pan, brown hamburger (salt & pepper to taste). While hamburger is browning, combine Beans, Tomatoes, Tomato Sauce, Chicken Stock & 2 Tbsp seasoning in a slow-cooker or large soup pot; stir & cover.

Once hamburger is half-way cooked, add diced onion and green pepper to hamburger and sautee. Once fully-cooked, season hamburger mixture with remaining 2 Tbsp chili seasoning. Let simmer for a few minutes to season, then add hamburger to bean mixture.

Cover and simmer for at least 1 hour on the stove...or on low all afternoon in a crock pot.
