1 lb. of regular ground beef * 1 lg. onion, chopped fine
2 cloves garlic, minced * 1/8 cup paprika
½ tsp. black pepper * ½ cup chili powder (or to taste)
1/8 cup cumin
Cook meat, garlic and onions until tender, use no water will form quite a bit of juice, but do not ladle off. When this is done add paprika, chili powder and cumin. Stir well and often while cooking about 15 minutes longer over very low heat. If desired, add 2 small cans tomato paste and stir often as this mixture burns very easily.
Add this to your pot along with the other chili ingredients.
