Looking for a chili recipe that’s spicy but not TOO spicy? This one is so delicious it will knock your socks off. Use canned chili beans (NOT kidney beans) for this recipe. For the bread bowls, simply hollow out some firm on the outside, soft on the inside Kaiser rolls and you’re in business!

~Dynamite Chili~

2 lbs. ground chuck

1 lb. mild Italian sausage (bulk, not links)

3 (15 oz. cans) chili beans (drained)

1 (15 oz. can) chili beans in hot sauce

    This sounds like dynamite. I did use actual bacon in my last chili and a different taste to acquire. I really didn’t like, but the beer I will have to try…

    It’s also really good with a little red wine instead of the beer 😉
