5 Way Chili add ons

Please note the onions that are cooked in the chili are optional. You can leave them out. I personally love onions when cooked in the chili. Steak and Shake does not add onions to cooked chili. Chopped onions are served on top of the chili.
In a skillet on medium-low heat saute ground beef and onions. When beef has been cooked, drain all grease and place in a medium-large saucepan. Add celery salt, tomato sauce, kidney beans, garlic powder, garlic salt, chili powder, pepper, water and salt, mix all ingredients.
On low heat place a lid on the saucepan and simmer for one hour, stirring frequently. After chili has been cooking for an hour add tomato paste and stir well. Place lid on the pan and simmer an additional half hour. Prepare spaghetti as directed and drain.
