Uncle Harold's Chili

Recipe from: Melinda

This is what I grew up calling Chili, although it's not what most people call chili these days. Someone I know calls this type of dish chili beans :-) Whatever you want to call it, they're mighty good! My Great Aunt gave me the recipe, but I don't know where my uncle originally got it from...

1 pound pink beans
2 pound ground beef
2 onions, chopped
2 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper

Soak beans overnight. Drain and cook until soft, about 1 to 2 hours, in fresh water. Brown meat. Add chopped onion, chili powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Pour beans (with cooking water!) into meat and add water to your taste. Stir often. When water gets low, add more until beans are done and it looks good and thick. If needed, you can thicken the sauce with 2 tablespoon flour whisked into the chili.
