Chia's Chipotle Chili

"My husband created this recipe and it's my all-time favorite chili!  It has a smoky and spicy taste that warms you up on those chilly Fall and Winter days.  It's a great dish to make for tailgating to keep you warm while cheering on your favorite football team or to enjoy at your next Superbowl party too!"    

1 pound ground beef
1 roll Jimmy Dean Premium Pork Hot Sausage
1 large onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
6 jalapeno peppers, finely minced
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, finely minced (from a 12 ounce can)  *We use La Costena brand.
1 can (28 ounce) diced tomatoes
1 can (6 ounce) tomato paste
2 cans (16 ounces each) red kidney beans
2 cans (14 ounces each) beef broth
1/2 cup white or red wine
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
3 Tablespoons chili powder
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 Tablespoon cumin
1 Tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon ground oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

In a large saucepan, stock pot or dutch oven, brown ground beef and sausage; along with onion, green pepper, jalapeno peppers and garlic, until browned.  Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine.  Simmer chili on medium heat for about 1 hour.  Ladle into bowls and top with grated pepper jack or cheddar cheese and sour cream.  Serve with oyster crackers or corn bread muffins.

TIP:  This makes a large pot of chili so we often freeze part of it to enjoy at a later time.

Simmered to perfection!
