Best chili recipe! My husband loves sausage so I tried it at home and it was a sucess. I had a casino party at the house and decided to incorporate this dish to the menu. Also, I cooked steamed white rice on the side, zero, nada, left!!! I had to share the recipe with at least 10 of the attendees! Thank you for sharing!

This was good but it is more like a unique pasta sauce. Very much a tomato base recipe. I served this with Romaine Salad with Avocado Dressing.
