Southern Cowgirl Chili

I love chili and everything about it. I can eat it all year round. I have tasted many different types of chili's made many different ways. In the past few years I have made probably close to 20 different chili's. I would try different beans or no beans but changing the spices was usually what I was doing. Then I thought to myself. If I'm using the McCormick band spices to make this why not just save myself time and buy their chili Spice packet and work out taste from there. So I did, and by the end of all the different variations I came up with this was the chili recipe that won not only my heart but my husband. I now call it Southern Cowgirl Chili. I recently took this to a chili cook-off at work and I won First Place. It was a fun moment knowing that not just my family loved but others as well. 

What Y'all Need:
1 lb. of ground beef
1 lb. of Jimmy dean breakfast ground sausage
1 can of red kidney beans(drained)
1 can of Bushs Grillin beans Texas Ranchero Flavor pinto beans
1 can of ranch style beans
1 reg. can of diced tomatoes
1 reg. can of rotel
1 packet of McCormick Mild Chili seasoning(cup of water)
1 small onion and bell pepper diced
Salt and Pepper to taste

What to do:
Cook the meats. Add together and then Saute the onion and bell pepper in meat. Stir the chili pkg in a cup of water. Then add everything else in the meat mixture. Stir together! I cook it on med for about 30 mins and then low for like 1 hr but the longer it cooks the better.
