Chili Topping

Mr. Bear likes his hot dogs with my chili, cheddar cheese, and diced vidalia onions!

1 pound ground beef
1 vidalia onion, diced
1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
1.5 cups water
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon oregano
Salt and pepper to taste

In a large saucepan, brown the ground beef using a spatula to break the meat into fine pieces. Drain the fat and add the onion. Cook until soft. Stir in tomato paste, water, sugar, chili powder, oregano and salt and pepper to taste. Let mixture come to a boil, cover and reduce the heat. Simmer for 1 hour.
