I created this recipe on the fly one day and my husband and I loved it. I was trying to stretch things a bit and found a new taste that really turns the old fashioned beef chili into a bold flavored beef and chicken chili.
Heat olive oil in a stock pot. Add chopped or diced onions and cook for a couple minutes. Add ground beef and brown, breaking up the ground meat as it cooks.
Once meat is browned well add the rest of the ingredients and mix well, bring to a boil and allow to cook on boil stirring constantly for about 5 minutes. (NOTE: to avoid sticking make sure you stir constently)
Reduce heat to simmer and allow to simmer for about an hour. Stir often.
Serve with oyster crackers and shredded cheddar cheese or shredded colby jack cheese.
NOTE: For a different flavor and a creamy chili, add a healthy spoonful of ricotta cheese in place of shredded cheddar or colby jack cheese.
