Basic Beef Chili

This is for when you don’t feel like going crazy with your chili.  It’s for when you want a nice, comforting bowl of chili with some cheese melting on top of it and a side of saltines.  Yum!  We had this for dinner and it hit the spot.  There is also plenty left over for the next few days!
