Sausage and Beef Chili

This was delicious.  What is better than warming yourself up with a bowl of beefy chili on a cold day?  Chili with beef and sausage.  Oh yeah.  Sign me up for seconds (thirds?).  Edited from Taste of Home.


Sausage and Beef Chili

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound Italian sausage
  • 5 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 3 cans of diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano
  • 2 cans chili beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2-3 cups of beef broth
  • 1 can of tomato paste (6 oz)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Combine your beef, sausage, and celery in a large soup pot and cook until meat is browned.  (I put the celery in right away because it takes so long to soften!)  Add the onion, peppers, and garlic.  Cook for a few minutes or veggies are tender.  Stir in the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 20 minutes.  Stir occasionally and add more beef broth as needed.  Serve with cheddar cheese and whole wheat crackers!  Oh, and don’t forget some corn bread! 🙂
