How to Make Jenn's Basic Chili

Step-by-Step

  1. Sauté sausage & ground beef, onion, peppers & garlic in a large, heavy saucepan until browned, stirring to crumble sausage; drain excess grease.
  2. Combine sausage mixture with remaining ingredients in a large stockpot.
  3. Cover & simmer 1-1 ½ hours.
  4. This can also be done in a crockpot on low for several hours (the longer it cooks the more time the spices have to stew!)
