"This is the best chili you will ever have! It's not your ordinary chili with chopped meat! I make this and let it cook in a slow cooker. It's great for parties or cold winter nights."

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat; cook the steak, sausage, onion, green pepper, red, pepper, yellow pepper, and garlic in the pot until the onions and peppers are soft, about 5 minutes. Add the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, chicken bouillon, honey, and kidney beans; bring to a boil. One at a time, stir in the cayenne pepper, chili powder, oregano, black pepper, salt, and sugar. Sprinkle the Cheddar cheese into the chili in small batches and stir to melt. Reduce heat to low and slow cook about 2 hours. Thicken by stirring the masa through the chili, and simmering for 10 minutes.

Awesome recipe. I tried it with and without the sausage, and prefer it without. I also eliminate the beans b/c it's TEXAS chili. I used 1/2 can of chicken broth instead of chicken buillon. I...

This wasn't bad, but rather spicy, and I cut the cayenne and chili powder down. I didn't add the sugar, but did put in the honey--I guess it's a good thing I did, although I was worried about m...

Recipe Group Selection: 12, November '11. I only made a half batch of this and it made plenty for the two of us. I didn't have a can of kidney beans so I used mild chile beans. I fixed this ...
