I know it's almost Spring, but it's still mostly in the 40s here in Indiana. So bring on the chili! We've been having it 2-3 times a week all winter, so I've been trying out several new chili recipes. I have found so many great ones on Pinterest, but this one in particular is one of my favorites:
Sausage and White Bean Chili
(modified from Cinnamon, Spice, and Everything Nice)
1/2 lb. ground pork sausage
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 large onion, diced
1 green, red, yellow, or orange pepper (or a mixture), diced
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. chile powder
1 tsp. dried oregano, crushed between fingertips
salt and pepper, as desired
1 (14 oz.) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 (14 oz.) can cannellini or great Northern beans, undrained
1 (14 oz.) can corn, undrained
shredded cheddar cheese
tortilla or corn chips
1. Cook sausage in a Dutch oven until no longer pink. Drain grease and set sausage aside on a plate.
2. In same Dutch oven, saute onion and pepper in olive oil. Once veggies are tender, add garlic powder and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add all remaining spices and cook for 2 more minutes.
3. Stir in tomatoes, beans, corn, and sausage. Simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
4. Serve with cheese, sour cream, and chips if desired. Enjoy!
Notes: This is a great one to double because it only uses 1/2 lb. of sausage, and sausage usually comes in 1 lb. portions. So I double the recipe, and then freeze half of it for later. It's a double win: 1 meal for tonight with leftovers...and another meal pre-made for the future!
This Sausage and White Bean Chili goes great with corn bread too. Mmmmmm....this one is so tasty! I just love it. I hope your family does too!
