1 onion, chopped
2 jalapenos, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
3 stalks celery
1 lb ground beef (chicken if you prefer)
1 lb italian sausage (chicken if you prefer)
1 15 oz can tomato sauce
1 15 oz can diced tomatoes
Wick Fowler's 2 Alarm Chili Kit
Optional: sour cream (garnish), shredded cheddar cheese (garnish), kidney beans
Do I need to pay for a box of pre-measured chili spices? Probably not. But I ordered a box of 12 kits, so until I use them up, it makes my life a helluva lot easier. Life's hard enough already.
1. Heat olive oil in a dutch oven. Saute onion, jalapeno, bell pepper, celery, and meat until the meat is brown. Make sure you mix the meat so the sausage and beef are interwined.
2. Pour tomato sauce and diced tomatoes in. Add seasoning kit except for masa flour. Simmer 30 minutes.
3. Optional: for thicker chili (yay!), mix the masa flour with 1/4 cup warm water, then dump into the pot. Simmer for 3 hours.
Serve and enjoy! I highly recommend Frito dippers. Heaven.
