Beef and Sausage Chili

beef sausage chili recipe

This sausage beef chili recipe is the perfect cold weather day warm up. I’ve made chili plenty of times, and always used the standard chili kit that you find in the grocery store.

Jamie has been making this award-winning chili for a few years now. This chili recipe is amazing and Oh so good. I thought it was time to put all down in writing and share it with you.

This is a meal the whole family is going to enjoy.  We make this often during football season, it's a great game treat.

Are you ready? Here is what you need:

2 lbs. of ground beef (80/20)
1 lb. bulk Italian Sausage
1- 16oz. can of White Great Northern Chili Beans (We use Bush’s)
1- 16oz. can of Red Chili Beans (In Medium chili sauce)
1- 16oz. can of Red Chili Beans (In Hot sauce)
2- 6oz. cans of tomato paste
2- 28oz cans diced tomatoes (with juice)
1 large yellow onion (chopped)
2 green chili peppers (seeded and chopped)
10 slices cooked bacon (chopped)
½ cup beer (optional)
¼ cup chili powder
2 clove of garlic minced
2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. white sugar

For the garnish:

Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Sour Cream
Frito corn chips or crackers

Okay now, this part is really easy:

In a large pot, add your meat and cook it until it’s browned
Now drain the grease from the pot
Add everything else into the pot, bring this to a slight boil and then set on simmer
Cook this for 2 hours, adding more seasoning to your taste if needed.

Top off your hearty bowl of chili with some shredded cheddar, and sour cream for a nice cold weather warm up.

As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy.
