Award Winning Chili

The kids enjoyed this chili. They all had seconds and i think thirds! Thank you Lara From the Recipe Shoebox.

The ingredients:
2 lbs. ground beef
1 lb. pork smoked sausage (They look like a pack of little wienies--see ingredient picture above)
2 onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1 jalapeno pepper, diced
1 tsp. salt
1 can (14-oz) sliced stewed tomatoes
1 (1.75-oz.) envelope of chili seasoning
1 cup water
2 cups ketchup
1 can (16-oz.) cut green beans, drained
1 can (7-oz.) diced green chilies
1 can (15-oz.) kidney beans, drained
2 cans (15-oz. each) pinto beans, drained

Garnishments: Sour cream, shredded cheese, crackers

In large skillet, brown beef and smoked sausages with onion. Drain off drippings. Add garlic cloves, pepper, jalapeno, salt, stewed tomatoes, chili mix, and one cup water. Simmer 15 minutes. While tomato/meat mixture is simmering, combine beans, chilies, green beans, and ketchup into a large stock pot (or crock pot). Add the tomato/meat mixture to the beans/ketchup mixture in the large pot and simmer for 2 hours, stirring frequently. Serves 8-9. Top each serving with sour cream and/or shredded cheese.
