Weekday chili recipe? Not complicated, please

My recipe is very simple. It makes a MILD chili with little meat and lots of beans. The consistancy is thicker. This makes enough to feed 4.

1/2 lb lean ground hamburger
half an onion, diced
1 can diced tomatoes ready for chili
2 small cans tomato sauce
1 can mild chili beans UNDRAINED
1 can light red kidney beans UNDRAINED
1 packet McCormick mild chili seasoning
toppings of your choice ( I usually have shredded cheese, sour cream)
1 box Jiffy cornbread mix

In a pot, put tomato sauce and diced tomatoes on low heat. In a skillet brown hamburger and when it is almost done, add onion. Drain hamburger.

Add the cooked hamburger and onion mixture into the pot. Add chili beans, kidney beans, and chili seasoning packet. (As a sidenote, when you add the beans, dump the whole can of beans NOT drain them!) Put over medium heat, and allow to simmer for 15 minutes or until hot and cooked through, stirring occasionally.

Prepare Jiffy cornbread as directed on box. Voila! Super easy and mild chili.
