sturmhauke's "Goddammit, I need some chili!" recipe

sturmhauke's "Goddammit, I need some chili!" recipe
From: sturmhauke

1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
some oil
1 lb. ground beef
1 14 1/2 oz. can diced tomatoes
1 16 oz. can tomato sauce
1 16 oz. can kidney beans, drained

Note: the following measurements are approximate, I just eyeballed them.
1/3 c Gebhardt's chili powder
1/4 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
1 tbsp. cilantro
1 tbsp. oregano
2 tbsp. cumin (seeds preferred if you have a mortar and pestle)
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. salt

Sautee the onion and garlic in some oil for a few minutes, until the onion begins to turn translucent. Add the ground beef and brown. Add all the other stuff and stir. (If you have a mortar and pestle, use it to grind the spices before you add them. If you don't, you should go get one.) Simmer for about half an hour, stirring occasionally. Stand by with a box of tissues for sinus clearing action.
