It's time for Chili....

Although it is labor day weekend...I think it is safe to say that chili is a favorite any time of year. Here is my award winning (in a school chili cook off ) recipe!


1 lb Beef

1 lb ground turkey
1 package sweet or hot sausage
2 beef bouillon cube, crushed or minced
1 8 oz can sliced olives, drained
1 15 oz can black beans, not drained
1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
2 small cans Spanish tomato sauce
1 28 oz can red or pink kidney beans, not drained  
2 bell peppers, diced (any color)
1 medium onion, diced
1 jalapeno, sliced lengthwise with ½ seeds removed
Spices to your liking (chili powder, crushed red pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika, cumin, black pepper, fresh or dried cilantro, garlic, hot sauce)


1. In a Dutch oven pot on the stove, brown each of the meats individually.
2. Add beef bouillons to a mug of hot water and dissolve, add to pot.
3. Add all other ingredients except for the meat, corn, tomato juice and spices. Let veggies soften.
4. Put all three meats back in and stir.
5. Let cooked for about 15 minutes.
6. Add tomato juice, corn, and spices. Mix thoroughly.
7. Put chili in a Crockpot and let cook all day or over night at low or simmer on the stove for a few hours. 

Serve with rice, chips, sour cream, cheese, or anything else that you want!
