Really good...really meaty. We did this on top of the stove simmered for about 1 1/2 hour. We used some leftover marinated beef strips cut into bite sizes as well as some hot bulk sausage. I also used Ranch Style Beans in place of the Chili Beans. We will definitely make this again!

This was so wonderful Kathy. My dh & I enjoyed it very much. It was very quick and easy to make, with great results. I've never had or made chili with sausage and or steak before. What a treat. I won't be going back to the ground beef versions. My dh stated that this was probably the best chili he has ever had...thanks so much for sharing.
