I am at the cottage on the Cape, enjoying some rest and relaxation. With the cool weather, its the perfect time to make chili. It is one of Jeremy's favorite meals.
I was originally planning on making a small batch of chili, just enough for one meal and a serving or two of leftovers. That plan went right out the window when I started shopping! I made enough to serve a small army, or a large family.

2 lbs ground beef
2 onions - minced

*** Sometimes I like to add 2 diced carrots as well!!!
