This past October some friends of ours had a chili cook off. It was tons of fun and really made us put a lot of though into coming up with the best Chili recipe. This is a recipe that my husband found on the internet that received 3rd place in the chili cook off. We have cooked this a few times since then. If you use to much hot sauce this chili can be spicy. There is a portion of this recipe that has to marinate in the refrigerator over night.

  2. Dice peppers and onions. Place in a large bowl. Add garlic. Chop the round steak into cubes and add to large bowl. Take the roll of sausage and break into pieces and place into the large bowl. You do not need to cook the sausage first. Add salt, pepper, liquid smoke, worchestershire sauce. Mix all ingredients in large bowl together. Cover the large bowl and let sit in the refrigerator over night.
  3. Cooking the chili.
  4. After you have marinated the mixture over night, you want to use a large skillet to start to brown the mixture. You will need to do this in batches as it will brown quicker and make it easier for you to keep stirring as you are browning. Don't be to concerned with making sure that the meat gets fully cooked as it will simmer in a pot for 3-4 hours. Do not drain your meat mixture as the juices from your meat mixture will be great flavoring for your chili. Once the meat mixture is browned you can dump it right into a large pot. Then you can add chili beans, crushed tomatoes. Add the seasonings chili powder, tabasco sauce, cumin and coriander, cayenne pepper. Stir your pot and let simmer. Simmer for 3-4 hours.
  5. You can top this chili with your normal chili topping or even use as a dip. Enjoy!
