Super Duper Easy Chili (yes, that's the official name)

My mom has been making this chili for years, and it is wonderful.

1lb Ground Beef
salt & pepper
2-30 oz cans of Original Kuners Chili Beans in chili sauce (it has to be this brand because the chili sauce is what helps give it the flavor. I've never had trouble finding them in any grocery store.)
2 lg. cans of stewed tomatoes
1 tsp. cumin
1-2 Tbsp. dried onion (depending on how oniony you want your chili)
dash of sugar (my mom says that all things made with tomato need a dash of sugar)

What to do:
In a large non-stick pot, brown the ground beef (salt and pepper to taste). Drain off grease if necessary. Add chili beans, stewed tomatoes, cumin, dried onion, and sugar to the beef. Stir together. Bring to a boil and then turn heat to medium/ medium low and simmer for 30-45 minutes. Voila!

Note: This makes quite a bit, but I put the left overs in the fridge and use it for several other things during the week: chili dogs, chili & cheese baked potatoes, chili cheese Fritos, wet backs...you get the idea.
