I used a packaged chili seasoning and I prefer to use McCormick's Original Chili seasoning mix that looks like the picture below. I will eventually decide to make my chili from scratch and don't worry I'll be sure to share the recipe. For now here's my lazy version.
2 lbs. ground hamburger
1/2 onion, diced
2 tbsp garlic, minced
2 pkgs. McCormick's Chili seasoning
4 small cans tomato sauce
2 cans red kidney beans (I use only 1 can since my hubby prefers less means more meat)
2 pkgs. hot dogs, sliced
1 stick Portuguese sausages, diced
Brown hamburger with garlic. Drain fat. Add onions and cook till tender. Add remaining ingredients and stir. Let simmer about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Here's a not so good picture of it since I was kind of lazy to get the better camera, so it was instead taken from my phone camera.
