Saute the meat in a large skillet, until partially done.
Add the onion and garlic, cooking till onion is soft. Stir in remaining ingredients(except for flour/water mixture). Cover and simmer 1 hour.

Note: A person requested Chili's chili recipe in our local newspaper. Found this recipe online and sent it to the paper for this week's food section. The lady posting the recipe online said, she has had the recipe for a while but hasn't tried it. Her information was, it supposedly is the Chili restaurant chili recipe. Enjoy!
i hope someone will make this recipe and let us all know how it turned out.
