Ingredients

  • 16 ounces sausage roll
  • 1/2 cup sweet yellow onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 pounds ground chuck plus water for cooking
  • 1 can tomato sauce 8 ounces
  • 1 can diced tomatoes 14.5 ounces
  • 1 cup water this is an ingredient. The water above is just for the chuck prep
  • 1 can black beans 15 ounces, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can red beans 15 ounces, drained and rinsed
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 ounce chili seasoning
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • ½ teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Optional Toppings

  • chopped onions
  • hot sauce
  • sliced jalapenos
  • shredded cheese
  • crackers
  • sour cream
  • cilantro

Instructions

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and crumble as it cooks. When almost fully browned, add the onion and garlic. Saute until onion is translucent, about 2-3 minutes. Drain oil if necessary and set aside.
  • Place ground chuck in a Dutch oven and use a wooden utensil to crumble. Cover completely with water. Bring water to a boil and boil the meat until brown. Drain the beef in a colander and return to the dutch oven.
  • Add the sausage and onion mixture to the ground chuck and stir to combine.
  • Mix in the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, both types of beans, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, chili seasoning, ketchup, mustard, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Mix well and cook the chili, stirring often, over medium-low heat at least 1 hour or until chili has thickened and flavors meld. If it cooks down too much, you can add a bit more water.
  • Serve with favorite toppings such as chopped fresh cilantro, chopped onions, cheese, crackers, hot sauce, sliced jalapenos, or a topping of your choice.
