|Grilled Corn, Roasted Red Pepper and Sausage Chili|
This is Spouse’s twist on her standard chili recipe to take advantage of the sweet corn season. I have pictured it here with some tortilla chips and garnishes of cheddar, sour cream and lime guacamole. I think this one makes great dip for tortilla chips too. I might serve it that way at our next get together with friends.
In a large pot heat 3 tbsp olive oil.
3 cloves minced garlic
1 medium red onion
Cook until the onions begin to soften.
1 pound lean ground beef
1 pound Italian sausage meat
Add to the garlic and onions and cook to brown breaking the meat into small pieces.
1 ½ cups tomato sauce
4 cups crushed tomatoes
2 roasted red peppers
3 ears of grilled corn, removed from cob
1 minced jalapeño pepper( optional)
3 heaping tbsp cumin
3 heaping tbsp chili powder
Salt and pepper to season
