After heading out to WFC in 2013 I became obsessed with Chili!
It is this wonderful monster that everyone loves! This recipe isn't easy, but it is just what the doctor ordered when you want some real, old fashioned, kick you in the ribs chili!

How to Make Lowdown and Dirty Chili


  1. Combine the dry seasonings; set aside. Combine the wet seasonings; set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a large heavy bottomed pot over medium high heat. Add the onion, green and red bell peppers, and jalapenos and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Add ground pork and both chorizos and cook for about 10 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Add the garlic and cook another minute. Drain off excess fat.
