In a large pot over medium heat, brown the ground beef. When the beef is about half done, add the onions and continue cooking until the onions are translucent and the beef is cooked through. Add the rest of the ingredients except the garnish(s). Stir together, bring to a light boil, then put over low heat and simmer for at least a half hour. Serve in bowls and top with garnish of choice. Enjoy!
