There are a million different ways to make chili! Chili is such an easy meal to throw together in the morning and then let sit in the crock pot all day. This chili recipe has a little bit of a darker, richer flavor than most of the chili’s I make. My husband loved it, my kids loved the hush puppies I made to go with it.
I started with the usual ingredients … a couple peppers – one hot, one not, an onion, a few cloves of garlic. I added 2 stalks of celery, 1 can of fire roasted diced tomatoes, 1 can of black beans and 1/2 bottle of dark beer. I had recently bought some delicious hot pork sausage from my local farm co-op so I cooked that and tossed it in. I added 2 Tablespoons chili powder, stirred everything together and let it cook on high for about 4 to 5 hours. So easy. Very delicious. Enjoy!
