Yield: 12 Servings (3 quarts)

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cans (16 ounces each) chili beans, undrained
  • 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 1 envelope chili seasoning mix
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 12 round blue tortilla chips, halved
  • 12 triangular blue tortilla chips

 

Directions:

  1. In a Dutch oven, cook sausage and onion over medium heat 5-7 minutes or until sausage is no longer pink, breaking up sausage into crumbles; drain. Add beans, tomatoes, water, chilies, seasoning mix and sugar; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 20 minutes to allow flavors to blend, stirring frequently.
  2. Top each serving with two halved round tortilla chips and one triangular tortilla chip inserted vertically into the chili between the round halves to resemble a witch’s hat.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled chili in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally and adding a little water if necessary.
