Easy Texas Chili

1 lb. of 90/10 hamburger
1 lb. of unseasoned sausage
1 box of Carroll Shelby Chili spice mix
1 medium size jar of Pace Chunky Salsa
1 8 oz. can of tomato paste
1 14 oz. can of diced tomatoes
Brown the meat
Add the spice packets
Stir while browning
Add the Salsa and Tomato products
Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer for 20-30 min.
Use the Masa packet to thicken to taste.
Use the Dark red spice packet sparingly to taste
Kidney beans can be added but don't tell anybody from Texas

Makes enough for 4-6 and freezes for reheat if any leftover

If you add the beans, don't cross the line into Texas! What a sin!!

I keep hearing about what a no-no it is in Texas to add beans to chili but gosh darn I was born here and I love adding beans to my chili. I suppose maybe I wasn't raised right, lol! 😜

My recipe is similar but I use Rotel instead of Pace and I prefer black beans instead of kidney beans, I add green chilies and mix my own spices. 😊

Two things you can't / don't do

1) Live in Oklahoma and make Texas chili (unless you were born in Texas and moved to Oklahoma)

2) The "Cardinal" sin of making chili is putting beans in it

And I placed second at my company chili cookoff

To be fair I do live in Houston, maybe that's not considered true Texas? I don't know, all I know is what I like to eat
