  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 10 oz yellow onion about 1 medium, diced
  • 5 oz red bell pepper about 1 medium, diced
  • 16 oz sausage or ground pork
  • 16 oz grass-fed ground beef
  • 5 tbsp chili seasoning mix (below)
  • 1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • salt and pepper to taste as needed
  • fresh sliced jalapeno for garnish optional

Chili Seasoning Mix

  • 4 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  1. Heat oil in a heavy-bottomed skilled over medium high heat. Add the onion and bell pepper and cook until translucent, about 10 minutes. 

  2. Add the ground beef and ground pork/sausage. Break apart as the meat is cooking to form crumbles. Cook through until no pink crumbles are left. 

  3. Add the chili seasoning mix, and stir to coat. Dump in the canned tomatoes. Heat through until just bubbling, stirring occasionally. Season with more salt and pepper as needed. 

  4. Serve in a bowl topped with fresh sliced jalapeno (optional). If you are into dairy, top with cheese and sour cream. Enjoy!
