Smoky Sausage Chili

Smoky Sausage Chili

Ready in 30 minutes

Thick, meaty, spicy, smoky chili. Very easy to make and filling - see notes for a recipe for leftovers. Freezes well and better the second day.

" Best chili I've ever had, I used a whole pound of sausage instead of the half lbs it called for, I also got spicy smoked sausage. It has a nice kick to it but it's not too spicy. I never cook and this was very quick and easy to make. Next time I'm going to add bell peppers. Thx to whomever posted this recipe."

Preparation

Brown ground meat with onion in large sauce pan or dutch oven. Sprinkle chili powder and cumin over meat while cooking and stirring for about 2 minutes. Slice and quarter the smoked sausage. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes. Add a little water if it gets too thick.

Notes

For your leftover chili or for a little different dish, fry taco sized flour tortillas in a little butter in a skillet until they are soft. Put the chili in the middle and top with grated cheddar cheese. Fold over to make a messy taco! YummY!!!

I am new to cooking, and this recipe was easy and delicious! I can't wait to try it again. Even though it's just my husband and me, I will have to double, maybe even triple the recipe next time.

I had fun making this, the cilantro idea was a good one. We also put shredded cheese and chopped onion on top.we also thought that some sour cream would also be a added treat. Thank you.
