*Gift Idea-You could combine all the spices and bottle/package it up and give it away and include directions with it. I think this combo of spices is much better than buying one of those packages at the store. I plan on making homemade taco seasoning and giving some away this Christmas so I don't know why you couldn't do this the same way.
2lbs ground beef
1 large yellow sweet onion, diced
2 cans of beans, drained & rinsed (I used pinto & kidney but next time I'll only use pinto)
3 cans of tomatoes, with juice (I'd suggest using Chili Tomatoes or fire roasted tomatoes)
2 tbsp. oregano
2 tsp. ground cumin
3 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. chipotle chili powder
2-6 tbsp. Chili powder (depends on how spicy you want it, I used 5)
salt & pepper to taste
In a large pot combine your onions, beef, and seasonings and cook on medium high heat until your meat is browned. Add your tomatoes and beans and bring to boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
