2 (#10) cans tomato sauce
12 tablespoons chili powder

2 tablespoons black pepper
4 tablespoons salt
3 tablespoons garlic
2 teaspoons oregano
2 teaspoons cumin
15 tablespoons paprika
8 cups diced fresh onion
Cooked beans, to add later

Place the cubed meat in a large roaster in a preheated 450 degrees F oven to brown. Stir frequently until done. Add remaining ingredients and set oven at 375 degrees F.
Cover and bake the chili for 3 hours in the oven.
Freeze chili in blocks to be thawed and served later. Keep a fresh pot of beans on the stove to add to the chili just before serving.
