Chili Cheese Tator Tots

(because sometimes it's necessary :)

More of a reminder idea than recipe..Baked, so it's healthy (ier), right?

Simple Chili Sauce

1 lb ground beef (80% lean)
cold water
1 medium onion, chopped
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 cups water

Make the chili--soak ground beef in cold water for 30 minutes and drain; this ensures that the beef will remain free of lumps and cook up into the proper consistency typical of Coney- and Texas-style sauces.

Place drained beef in a medium saucepan; add onion and spices, and mix well.

Stir in the 2 cups water and place over medium heat.

Cook the chili, stirring occasionally, for about 1 hour, or until it thickens.

The chili may be frozen for up to 3 months.
