1
Heat a large stock pot over medium-high heat. Crumble ground chuck and sausage into hot pan; add onion, celery and bell pepper and cook until beef is evenly browned and aromatics are softened. Drain any excess grease.

Pour in remaining ingredients stirring to blend well. Cover and simmer over low heat for at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

After 2 hours, taste and adjust salt, pepper and chili powder if necessary.

The longer this simmers, the better it will taste. Remove from heat and serve or refrigerate and serve the next day.
