Super bowl chili

Here is a basic coarse ground beef and red bean chili that I make often for my friends that like chili. Other ingredients can be added to make different variation's, options are endless using different beans, meats and seasonings. Great to make in a huge quantity for a crowd and to freeze for future meals.

1 pound bulk country sausage
1 pound bulk chili grind beef
2 T cumin
3 T red chili powder
1 T smoked Spanish paprika
1 fresh diced pasila chili pepper
3 diced yellow onion
1 bulb diced garlic
2 cans organic diced tomato
1 small can tomato paste
3 quarts water
2 pounds dry red beans

1. Saute all the vegetables in vegetable oil.
2. Add meat and brown.
3. Add the beans and cover with water, bring to a simmer and cook till beans are tender, about 2-3 hours, Check seasoning before serving.

Note: Garnish with your choice of grated cheese, diced onion, chopped cilantro, hot sauce, sour cream, etc.
