This is one of those creation recipes. I had sent Don to the store for the ingredients– one of these being sausage. He brought home sausage links… and I figured “what the heck?” So, we dubbed this one Chili Mistake.
1 package Johnsonville (or other brand) sausage links–NOT breakfast sausage
1 medium green pepper, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
2 Tbs. flour
1 can beef broth
2 cans diced tomatoes, undrained
2 cans chili beans, drained
1/2 medium onion, diced
Saute onion, celery, and peppers in skillet with a little olive oil. Add sliced sausage. Continue to cook until sausage is no longer pink. Transfer sausage and veggies to a pot and add remaining ingredients. Bring to boil, cover and turn down heat. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
