With the weather getting colder I start digging out all my soups and casserole recipes. In my digging, I found my friend Heather's chili recipe. It is a bit different than traditional chili but now I can't eat it any other way! Hope you enjoy!
1/2 pound sweet Italian sausage
1/2 pound hot Italian sausage (or one pound of one flavor)
1 green bell pepper sliced
1-2 red or yellow bell peppers sliced
1 large onion chopped
2 cans beans-any you like, I'm picky with my beans
4-5 cans diced tomatoes
2 packs of chili seasoning
1 tablespoon of sugar
I cook my sausage then combine everything in a big pot and cook at least an hour. My friend puts everything in a crock pot and cooks it overnight (including the raw sausage). I just dont have a big enough crock pot ;)
Serve with cheese and crackers, etc.
