Traditional Chili

My mom made a pot of chili every so often while I was growing up. This recipe stems off of hers. It is a wonderful recipe for a traditional chili that everyone craves every once and a while.
In skillet, cook over medium-high heat:
1 T. oil
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans peeled, chopped green chilies
In crock pot on high or 5 or 6 quart saucepan on stove top on medium high heat, put above mixture and:
5-6 c. tomato juice (depending on how long you cook it, you may need to add more like 6)
1-2 14oz. can diced tomatoes, your preference
2 t. cumin (or more)
2 t. chili powder (or more)
1 can kidney beans, drained
1 can black beans, drained
1 can chili beans with sauce
1 can whole kernel corn, drained (optional)
cheddar cheese for garnish
chopped onions for garnish
Cook in crock pot for 3-4 hours or on stove top for 1-2 hours (or more) until thickened, dark and to your likin'. Serve with cheese and onions on top, if desired.
