  • 1 large white onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cumin, approximately 2 teaspoons or to taste
  • Chili powder to taste, approximately 1/4 cup
  • 1 teaspoon sugar, optional
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • Garlic salt, optional
  • Cayenne pepper, approximately 1/2 teaspoon or to taste

Directions:

  1. In a nonstick skillet, cook onions in olive oil until softened; add to crock pot. Please note that it’s important to cook down onions before adding in tomatoes, which could hamper cooking.
  2. Add in all other ingredients, then break beef up with spoon. Cook on medium-high for 4 to 6 hours or until beef is cooked thoroughly. Stir every so often. Makes approximately 8-12 servings.
