I do something very similar with no recipe per se. I just go by memory, use HOT Italian sausage and instead of the various spices, use a store bought packet.
But my supply of packets is dwindling and I cannot find more of the same, so I like the ingredient list above. I will try it as a replacement for my packets.

Thanks for posting.

That's a recipe I'm going to have to try!

We all have a great spicy bean recipe but one thing I like to do with mine is mix up 2 boxes of Jiffy Cornbread mix (for a 10 inch dutch oven) per the directions and 20 minutes before the dish is done pull the lid off and pour the batter gently on top of the beans. Then put the lid back on and 20 minutes later you'll have this golden dome of cornbread on top and covering your bean mixture!

When you slice it up the bottom of the cornbread soaks up the bean juices and is wonderful!

People freak out when they see me pour the cornbread mix in but it floats and rises to fill the dutch oven.

Found this out when I didn't have a spare oven to cook the cornbread in and had already mixed the batter. Took a chance by pouring it over the beans and expected a mess when I opened the lid but it works every time and is a crowd pleaser!

I would eat a bowl or two of that in a heart beat. I make my chili for eating not for competition and I use beans.

If you need rules to follow, here is a link to start with.

Hi Dean
You know I love beans. ;)
Would love to try this recipe, but it is mot a cheap one??? :roll:
It would have to feed 20 people to make it worthwhile. :thinking:
And Mike.......what have you got against beans?
We are going to miss you at the Phuddy Duddy Rally this year, as it is the same weekend as our Farm Gathering.
We would love to have you come on the Fall Crawl.....there will be some wonderful cooking. :wine: :wine:
