Shannon Fane


2 pounds ground beef
1/2 pound pork sausage
1 large onion diced
5 cloves of garlic chopped
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
3T. cumin
3T. chili powder
1 28 oz can San Marzano tomatoes ( these have great flavor)
2-14 oz cans of diced tomatoes
4-5 15oz cans of various beans ( I use black, chili, and kidney) do not drain
1 jar of chili sauce
2T. Country Bobs steak sauce
2T. Worcestershire sauce
3T. Honey
1T. balsamic vinegar
12 oz of Chicken stock
Salt and pepper to taste

Brown meats and drain

Remove meats and add a few swirls of olive oil, onions and garlic

Sauce those until translucent, add back the meat and the rest of the ingredients.

Simmer it as long as you have. I like to cook this in the am and the turn it back on in the afternoon. You may need to re-season and that is OK. I usually have to add more chili powder and honey. You won't mess it up so don't be scared to add seasoning to taste.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
We like to serve this with sour cream and cheddar cheese. Even better on day two with baked potatoes or hot dogs. I usually don't like recipes with this many ingredients but this one is worth all the trouble
