  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 lb Andouille sausage (I like Poche’s in Breaux Bridge, LA)
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 (29 ounce) cans diced canned tomatoes
  • 2 (29 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (16 ounce) can tomato paste
  • 1 (16 ounce) can Rotel with diced tomatoes and chilies
  • 2 (16 ounce) can kidney beans (washed)
  • 2 (16 ounce) can black beans (washed)
  • 1 large red onion, chopped
  • 6 jalapeno peppers, chopped (remove seeds)
  • 3 serrano peppers, chopped
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 4 - 6 oz Cajun Power Garlic Sauce
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Tony Chachere's Seasoning
  • 4 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons cumin
  • 1 tablespoon ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


Step 1

Call friends and family, let them know you are about to make some throw-down Chili!

Step 2

Before the stampede, grab a large Magnalite pot (10-quart) and brown the Andouille sausage (cut in cubes or slices), ground beef and ground pork on high heat (do not drain). The idea here is to get some good browning/sear in the pan so don't fret if it sticks to the bottom, that's the idea. Just don't go overboard and burn it.

Step 3

Throw in the celery, onion and garlic, cover, reduce heat and let it do it's thing for 10 minutes at least, stirring frequently.

Step 4

Everything else goes in! Be sure to include all the juices from the diced-tomato cans.

Step 5

Let it come together at a high simmer for about an hour, less if you can't wait. Grab a bowl, get a beer or soda and chow down!!

Step 6

Author does add - you can use less beans than on the recipe. One can of each instead of two of each - this author does say that he likes a lot of beans in his chili!
