DIRECTIONS

  • Brown pork sausage and remove from pan. When cooled, break into smaller bits.
  • Brown bacon and remove from pan.
  • Saute onion and green pepper in bacon grease and remove from pan.
  • Mix all ingredients into a large baking dish and bake at 325º for 1 hour, or simmer on stove top in large pot for 30 minutes if you don't have time to do them in the oven.
  • This is a rather spicy recipe due to the chipotle/cayenne powder. Feel free to leave it out if you'll be feeding those who prefer a less spicy taste.
