Really Good Chili

1 Hot Italian Sausage (I used a Hot Chicken Italian Sausage), sliced
1 Sweet Italian Sausage (I used a Salisicca), sliced
½ medium yellow onion, chunked
1-2 cloves of garlic, diced
½ teaspoon crushed ginger
½ cup white wine

I just sliced my sausage and left the casing’s on, but you could remove them from the casings if you want. Put all of the above (except the wine) in a pan with a little oil and brown the sausage. Add the wine to deglaze the pan and put it all in a stock pot.

1 box chopped tomatoes, 750 g
1 can black beans
1 small zucchini, sliced
3 small carrots, sliced thick
1 stalk of celery, sliced
¼ to ½ inch slice of fresh ginger, chopped

Add all of the above and give it a good stir.

2 heaping teaspoons of ground chocolate
1 heaping teaspoon chili powder
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon salt
Dash of celery salt

Season with the above, adjusting the amounts to taste. All these amounts are approximations anyway. Let it simmer for 30 minutes or more.

Orange pepper, chopped
Yellow tomato, diced
Red tomato, diced
Red onion, diced
Sour cream
Blue cheese
Brown rice (I cooked 1 cup of dry brown rice for 4 servings)

Serve it over brown rice using the orange pepper, tomatoes, and red onion as a garnish. Add a little sour cream and a scoop or two of blue cheese. Mix it up, and enjoy.

Makes about 4 servings.
