3 pds. ground beef
1 medium onion, diced
1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
cracked black pepper & garlic salt to taste ( I use lots)
dry Italian salad dressing seasoning packet (0.7 oz)
1 (14 1/2 oz.) can diced tomatoes (I use garlic, basil, oregano flavored)
1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce
1 (15 1/2 oz.) chili beans
8 Tbls. chili powder
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbls. honey
3 cans water

In a 6 quart pot, brown ground beef and drain. Add olive oil to pot and saute' onions until lightly browned. Return ground beef to pot and add remaining ingredients. Cover with lid and boil 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

After 20 minutes of a boil, uncover and simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Turn the heat off and let sit and do NOT stir. You want the top to thicken for 45 minutes. After chili rests for 45 minutes, stir and serve!
