Here's a simple but tasty chili recipe I put together over the weekend. I took the original idea from an episode of Emeril, but didn't really follow any hard and fast recipe.
1/2 lb. Hamburger
1/2 lb. Country Sausage
1/2 lb. Italian Sausage
4 Slices of Bacon (fried and crumbled)Garbanzo Beans, drained (2 cans)
Red Kidney Beans, drained (2 cans)
Dark Kidney Beans, drained (2 cans)
Tomato Juice (2 cans)
Whole Stewed Tomatoes (1 can)
3 medium onions (diced)
2 medium green peppers (diced)
Cumin (to taste)
Chili Powder (to taste)
Black Pepper (to taste)
Salt (to taste)
Onion Powder (to taste)
Garlic Powder (to taste)
Drain the excess grease from the meat prior to adding to the bean and spice mixture. (I did not add water to this recipe while cooking, but if you like juicy chili you could also add 12 ounces of water. The juice from the stewed tomatoes will add moisture while cooking.) Stir periodically.
Also, you could substitute the spices with a generous portion of The BBQ Guy's "Original Spice Rub" if you prefer.
Bring the chili to a slow boil for 20 minutes in a large cooking pot, and then let simmer for an additional 45 minutes on low heat.
