1 pound ground beef
1/2 pound ground Italian sausage
1 cup chopped onion
1 14.5 ounce can petite cut tomatoes (don’t drain)
1 16 ounce can dark red kidney beans (don’t drain)
1 16 ounce can chili beans in chili sauce
1 15 ounce can tomato sauce
2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. basil
1. Sauté beef, sausage, and onion. Drain fat.
2. Stir in remaining ingredients. Simmer for awhile.
3. Add 1 stick (large link) of Louis Rich low-fat Turkey Sausage(found near the bacon) sliced thin and then in halves.
Now the real game ticket is to serve this over rice. Really. Over rice. Try it! You can also garnish it with sour cream; shredded cheese; jalapeno's; green onions etc.. Oh, and cornbread rolls go perfect with this!
* I almost always double or triple this recipe. It freezes great. When I do that I usually add an extra can of the petite diced tomatoes.
