Our ward had a wonderful Halloween carnival and Chili feed last night and I can't believe how many people came! It was amazing! Now before I'm off to get the kids ready for trick or treating tonight... (one of the few perks of living in a small town.. when Halloween falls on a Sunday we just move it!) I thought I would post my chili recipe. Now I never use a recipe and each time I've made chili it has turned out differently, this I think in my opinion was the best batch ever! So I think that is why I'm writing down what I did for next time!!

1 lb ground beef
1 pkg chorizo sausage
2 cans black beans
2 cans white beans
1 can kidney beans
3 cans fire roasted tomatoes
1 red pepper
1 jalapeno
1 anahiem pepper
1 pasilla pepper
1 onion, diced
2 T garlic, minced
1 T chili powder
1 tsp cayenne
salt and pepper to taste
water as needed

Start by throwing the red, anahiem, and pasilla peppers on a baking sheet with some olive oil in the oven at 350`. Roast the peppers for about 20 minutes till bubbly and soft. Brown the ground beef and draining it. Set aside. Cut the chorizo, my pkg came with 2 large links and I got the pre cooked stuff, I quarted it and fried it up in a bit of olive oil to give it some more flavor. When the peppers are done place them in a bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. Chop the onion and garlic and saute in remaining oil from the ground beef and chorizo. After the peppers have cooled a bit, remove the skin, and seeds and place the cleaned peppers in a blender, add a can of the tomatoes and blend well. Return the beef and chorizo to the pan with the onions and garlic, add the beans and the mixture from the blender. Add the remaining cans of tomatoes in the blender and mix. Add this also to the pan. Add the chili powder and cayenne and adjust the seasonings. Simmer for at least 30 minutes. Serve hot with sour cream cheese and tortilla chips and my favorite with corn bread! enjoy!
