I was making chili one day and discovered I was out of chili powder.  So I got this grand idea to use taco seasoning mix instead.  It turned out wonderful!  I've always used taco seasoning mix since then, and everyone loves my chili.  This makes enough chili for a small crowd, so you'll need a large pot.  To make less, simply cut the ingredients in half.

2 cans stewed tomatoes
