This is a GREAT recipe for chili that was given to me by my sister-in-law. Much different than any I've tried. My family loves it.


  • 3 lbs. hot & mild Italian sausage (1-1/2 of each)
  • 1 onion-chopped
  • 1 green pepper-chopped
  • 3 T. Basil
  • 3 T. Oregano
  • 3 T. Cumin
  • ½ T. black pepper
  • 2 T. chili powder
  • 1/3 c. fresh minced garlic
  • 3 28 oz. cans diced tomato
  • 1 can of diced green chili’s
  • ¼ c. red wine vinegar
  • ¼ c. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 to 3 cans (15 oz.) undrained kidney beans
  • 2 to 3 cans Garbanzo beans
  • Salt to taste.


  • Brown hot & mild sausage. Remove and sauté onion and green pepper in olive oil for 8-10 min. Add back the meat and add basil, oregano, cumin, black pepper, chili powder and minced garlic. (I only used ½ of the garlic). Add diced tomatoes to the meat and onion mixture. Simmer 1 hour on low. Add the green chili’s, red wine vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, kidney beans and Garbanzo beans. Add salt to taste.
  • This is the best if made the day before and then placed in a large crock pot to simmer the next day. (If you can wait that long!)
  • Hope you enjoy it!
