Chili Con Carne

1 cup onion, finely chopped
2 pounds hamburger
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves finely chopped garlic
1/2 cup water, boiled
4 tablespoons chili powder
1 pound, four ounces canned undrained tomatoes
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
30 ounces kidney beans, undrained

Saute hamburger, onion, and garlic until hamburger is browned. Dissolve chili powder in boiling water and add to meat mixture along with tomatoes, salt, oregano, and basil. Simmer over a low heat for about one hour. Stir occasionally. Simmer uncovered for about twenty minutes. Add beans. Continue cooking until most of the liquid has evaporated. Should make six to eight servings.

I like the look of some of your recipes. I'm no cook but I think I may try some of them.
