Chili in 30 minutes Hmm Good

Prep : 5 minutes       Time: 25 minutes      Total Time: 30 minutes
6 Generous Servings
This recipe was  given to me  by a very close friend , I couldn't believe the  taste  , deliciously  good . This  a hectic time with  shopping  , and for those  that need a hot  comfort dish quickly , well this is it . ENJOY !
This ground beef chili is hearty and delicious, and it takes only 30 minutes from start to finish! Don't feel overwhelmed by the list of ingredients, many are suggested toppings.
The ground beef is quickly browned, then it is combined with a spice mixture, beans, and tomatoes for a quick and easy meal for a busy day. It's also easy on the budget.
Make a pan of cornbread to go with the chili, along with a salad or slaw, or serve it with hot cooked rice and warm tortillas.
If you're making this for a party game day gathering, offer several toppings with the chili and add a bowl of tortilla chips to the menu. The recipe is easily doubled.

2 tablespoons dried minced onion
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried leaf oregano
