This one won a chili cook off!
1 onion chopped
3 green chili pepper's chopped (or a large can of green chili's_
couple pounds of ground beef
package of your favorite sausage (we used andoullie chicken sausage last time) with casing removed and sliced into rounds
2 12oz cans of: black beans, kidney beans
3 cups corn (frozen works great)
2 cups mushrooms sliced
2 32 oz. cans of fire roasted diced tomatoes
2 cups chicken broth
3/4 cup bourbon or to taste
1/4 cup diced jalapenos
4 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup sugar or honey
all these to taste- I don't measure
Saute onions and peppers until translucent. Add garlic, cumin, coriander, paprika, oregano, basil, chili powder and taco seasoning, cook until the fragrance of the herbs increase. Then add the ground beef. In a separate pan cook the sausages till browned. Put everything else in the pot and simmer for hours. Serve topped with cheese and cilantro. Tortilla chips are a mighty fine addition as well.
We meant to add bacon to it this last time but forgot... next time! I think it would be amazing!
