Copycat Wendy's Chili

This was a really good Chili recipe. It will be my go to recipe for chili. It is flavorful and easy to make.

1 pound ground beef
1 - 14.5 Oz. can tomato sauce
1 - 14.5 Oz. can kidney beans (with liquid)
1 - 14.5 Oz. can pinto beans (with liquid)
1/2 cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced green chilies (I used fresh green chilies b/c I had some...I used a whole pepper)
1/4 cup diced celery
2 medium tomatoes, chopped (I used 1/2 a pint of crushed tomatoes)
1 teaspoons cumin powder
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons salt
1 cup water

1. Brown the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat; drain off the fat.
2. Using a fork, crumble the cooked beef into pea-size pieces.
3. In a large pot, combine the beef plus all the remaining ingredients,
and bring to a simmer over low heat. Cook, stirring every 15 minutes,
for 2 to 3 hours. (I cooked mine in the crock pot on low for the afternoon and it worked great!)

Makes about 12 servings.
