1 pound ground beef
1 pound ground pork sausage
1 large white onion, chopped
1 large green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 large red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chiles
1 (12 ounce) bottle beer
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 (16 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 (16 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
14 (1 ounce) bags corn chips
Toppings: chopped onion, shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream
In a large dutch oven over medium heat, cook ground beef, ground sausage, onion, green pepper, red pepper, and garlic for about 10 minutes, or until meat crumbles and is no longer pink. Stir in diced tomatoes, beer, tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin, sugar, salt, red pepper, black pepper, and oregano. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 1 hour and 45 minutes, stirring every 20 minutes. Add kidney beans and black beans; cover and cook 15 minutes. Makes about 7 cups.
Can be served in bowls, or if desired can be served over corn chips right in the bag. Cut the corn chip bag open along one long side. Spoon 1/2 cup chili onto chips in each bag. Garnish with toppings, if desired.
This chili may be made ahead and frozen up to 3 months in zip-top freezer bags.
