Even though we love chili, I’d not made sausage chili. When the folks at Bob Evans asked me to try their recipe for Sausage Chili, I couldn’t turn it down.
BOB EVANS SAUSAGE CHILI
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Serves: Makes 6 servings
- 1 pound Bob Evans Zesty Hot or Original Recipe Sausage Roll
- 1 package chili seasoning mix (1.25 oz)
- 2 cans diced tomato with onions (14.5 oz)
- 1 can light red kidney beans, undrained (15.5 oz)
In large saucepan, crumble and cook sausage over medium heat until browned. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. SLOW-COOKER OPTION: Crumble uncooked sausage into bite-size pieces and put in slow-cooker. Add remaining ingredients. Stir gently. Cover and cook on low heat 4-6 hours. Stir before serving.
I always make a lot of chili, so I mixed some ground beef in with the sausage to make a sausage and ground beef chili. All I did was triple the ingredients – meaning 3 cans beans, 3 cans diced tomatoes, 3 packages chili mix, and 3 pounds meat (1 ground beef, 1 sausage, 1 zesty hot sausage). It was very tasty with the mix of the beef and sausages, a bit different then our usual. We seemed to have less leftovers then usual. I like to make a huge batch of chili because everyone loves it. I also like to make a lot of chili because it makes a great dip. We have plenty of chili to serve for anyone that stops by while the game is on today. And it’ll look terrific in these football serving bowls too!
