Saute hamburger until the pink is gone add onions and celery cook till onions are almost clear add chili powder. Salt and pepper to taste. Drain the fat if necessary!
Option 1 for Beans:.
Rinse the soaked beans, then place in the pot and cover with enough water to be an inch above the beans. Less water for thicker. I like it soupy for adding crackers or sopping up with a crusty bread.
Option 2 for Beans:.
Add canned Pinto, Red Kidney & Chili beans ( Do not Drain The Juices).
Add hamburger, chili brick, onions, celery, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce and beans stir together and simmer for approximately 1-2 hours until thickened to what you like. You may need to add a little water. Stir periodicaly while simmering.
