Now for the first recipe
Chili for the truly hungry
2 pounds slab bacon or ends and pieces cut into bite size pieces
3 pounds bulk sausage
2 pounds ground meat (beef, pork, goat, whatever you have)
6 cans of beans (I usually use 2 cans red 2 cans black and 2 cans of great northern)
1 large onion (I use a sweet yellow onion)
2 bell peppers (I like using 1 green and 1 red)
2 cans of tomato sauce
2 cans of dice tomatoes
Cajun or creole seasoning to taste
now first thing you need is a large dutch oven pre-heated
start with the bacon and the onion and peppers after they are cut up place in the dutch oven and douse it liberally with Cajun seasoning (I also like to add chipotle Tabasco to all the meat as it cooks) cook till crisp and drain.
next break up the sausage into the dutch with the bacon.
Again season liberally with Cajun seasoning drain when done.
break up ground meat and YUP you guessed it season liberally with Cajun seasoning.
When meat is done drain and then add the beans. I don't drain the beans you can if you want
add tomato sauce and tomatoes at this time
taste for seasoning and let simmer for 30 minutes
this will get better the longer it simmers but don't let it go for more than an hour
this is also great for freezing just let it sit in the fridge overnight before freezing or the flavors won't come full.
