Wendys Chili

Who doesn't like a good bowl of chili on a cold day. Wendy's makes a mean bowl. Top Secret Recipes has done it again and recreated a classic restaurant favorite. Here is my rendition:

1 lbs ground beef
1 (14 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (14 ounce) can kidney beans (with liquid)
1 (14 ounce) can pinto beans (with liquid)
1/2 cup diced onion (1/2 medium onion)
1 (4 ounce) can diced green chili pepper
1/4 cup diced celery (1 stalk)
1 medium tomatoes, chopped well
1-2 teaspoons cumin powder
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup beer

1. Brown the ground beef in a dutch oven over medium heat.
2. Place ground beef on a plate with a paper towel.
3. In a same dutch oven brown the onions in beef grease. Then combine all the remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer over low heat.
4. Cook, stirring every 15 minutes, for 2 to 3 hours
