You will need...
-2 lbs Bob Evans Original Roll Sausage (you could substitute the Hot to add a little more kick)
-1 1/2 cups finely chopped onion
-1 package chili seasoning (I use Kroger brand)
-3 cups tomato sauce
-3 cups tomato juice
-1 30oz can kidney or chili beans
Crumble sausage into large dutch oven. Add onions. Cook over medium heat until sausage is browned, stirring occasionally. Drain off any drippings. Stir in seasonings and then remaining ingredients. Bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes.
Or..... You could brown sausage and onions in dutch oven and then add everything to a crock pot, stir and let cook for a few hours (2-4 hours) before serving. I like to do this on the weekends because I can do other things while it is cooking and the flavors are all coming together. Plus it makes the house smell soooo good.
Enjoy. We like to eat our chili with cheese, oyster crackers and a dollop of sour cream! Yum.
