Happy New Year!


January 3, 2014 by Emily Pergament

Happy New Year, one and all! Hope you’re enjoying the winter wonderland outside. I can’t say for sure whether I am, but at least I’m inside.

Anyway, I started the new year right, with this spicy sausage chili I made up.


1 package of hot Italian sausage (about 1 lb)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can of kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can of whole peeled tomatoes
Seasoning to taste (chili powder, garlic powder, hot sauce, salt and pepper)

Remove the sausage from the casing, and cook fully in a little bit of oil. Drain off some of the liquid when it’s done, but keep a little bit because it adds a ton of flavor. Add all the ingredients into a Crock Pot and cook for 3 hours on low.

It’s by far the best chili I’ve ever made, and my mother-in-law even asked for the recipe, which is high praise in itself! I don’t think I can go back to chili with regular ground meat again.

Hope everyone had happy holidays. Best wishes for 2014!

    Looks good for the cold days ahead. Will try. Did you use the largest can of tomatoes?
