1 c. chopped onion
2 8-oz cans tomato sauce
1 12-oz can whole kernel corn, (or frozen)
1 clove garlic (garlic powder or garlic salt
to taste)
1 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp. salt

dash pepper
1 ½ c. cheddar cheese, grated

Cook meat and onion until lightly browned and onion is tender. Stir in tomato sauce, corn, garlic, sugar, salt, chili powder and pepper. Simmer 20-25 min or until thick.
