homemade chili

2 cups pinto beans (2 cans or dry cooked)
4 cups tomato juice (Welch’s 1 qt.)
2 lb. ground beef
3 tbsp. Worchester sauce
2 tbsp. onion
3 tbsp. chili powder
1 tbsp. cumin
dash tobacco sauce
1 tbsp. salt
2 tbsp. sugar

Brown beef then add other ingredients. Let simmer for a long time.

(notes from Laurie: I’d recommend cooking for about an hour (the leftovers were even better). Definitely add in some paprika and cayenne. Increase amount of onion. Also consider bell peppers and stewed tomatoes – really go crazy with whatever your favorite chili ingredients are as this is really nice base.)
