Chili (Recipe from LBJ Ranch kitchen)

Papa bear's mom made this and brought it over and I begged for the recipe. I'm making it today. The first picture shows how I really feel about this recipe.
I made one variation. I cooked the onions seperately while I brown the ground beef, then I combined. I love the flavor that the onion gives the oil so I don't want that drained out when the meat gets drained.

Chili (Recipe from LBJ Ranch kitchen)

1 large yellow onion chopped
1 ½ lbs coarsely ground beef
1 heaping teaspoon garlic salt
1 tablespoon Cumin
4 tablespoons Gerhardt chili powder
1 can stewed tomatoes (mashed)
1 can Rotel (tomatoes and green chilis)
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons corn starch + 6 TBS water
1 small can tomato sauce
1 family size can Ranch beans

Saute chopped onion in oil until clear in a seperate pan.
In a pot, brown meat thoroughly, stiring often, then drain.
Add all spices and stir well (don’t add cornstarch)
Add stewed tomatoes and Rotel tomatoes (I mashed the stewed tomatoes in the pan once I added them)
Mix cornstarch and water, then combine with tomato sauce.
Add tomato sauce mixture to chili
Stir well
Add can of Ranch beans
Cook covered at least 2 hours
Best served over rice.

Freezes well
