Awesome Chili recipe











1 1/6


Trans-fat Free, Good source of fiber


The meat
1 pound ground beef
1 pound hot italian sausages
1 pound smoked sausage
* see note
The veggie stuff
1 each onions
large, coarsely chopped
2 each garlic cloves
or more, minced
1 each sweet bell peppers
large, cut in 2/4 inch chunks
cup cornmeal
28 ounces tomatoes, canned
(1 can), chopped
27 ounces kidney beans, canned
(2 cans) **
The spices
1 tablespoons oregano
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon coriander
1 ½ teaspoons celery seeds
teaspoon cayenne pepper
*** see note
1 tablespoon red hot pepper sauce
*** see note
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
2 each seranos chilies
dried, *** see note (2 to 4)
teaspoon habanero chili peppers
(powdered) ***
1 teaspoon paprika
cup red wine


  • Cut this up into ½ inch chunks. It's not recommended to use more than 1 lb because it'll make it taste like spaghetti sauce.

** Drain and reserve ½ of the liquid to mix with the corn meal *** These things just add the "Zing" and not much full bodied flavor. That is what the wine and other things do for it. In a large pot, brown the beef, pork, onions and garlic over medium heat. After the above is browned, add the bell pepper and the smoked sausage. Cook for 5 to 10 more minutes. Reduce heat to low (and drain most of the fat) Blend in the tomatoes and spices and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in the drained beans. In a small bowl, mix the bean liquid with the corn meal until it's like pancake patter. Mix the "batter" into the chili and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or MORE. (Some people simmer their batch for about 2 hours, so use your judgement on this.) Sprinkle with Mozzarella or Gouda cheese and serve with sourdough bread. Or, make a Chili sandwich with a good sourdough roll. For best taste, freeze the result to "cure" the mix! Thaw, heat and serve.
