Please repost, pillow. Someone put "beans" into your recipe, not once, but twice.

This is why America is fat. We still use 1 pound of beef, but our bean 'cans' are 14.5 ounces instead of 16 ounces.

1/4 lb of andouille sausages, diced
1 can of tomato sauce or 1 can of tomatoes
1 can of dark kidney beans or chili beans (your pick)

Brown the beef in oil. Once browned on all sides add garlic and onions till onions are soft. Add sausages and chili powder. Add tomatoes/sauce, whichever. Add rest of ingredients except beans. Cook forever, add beans in last 1/2 hour of cooking.

LMAO

I did find some humor when Pillow listed "chili beans". Isn't that an oxymoron?

Here's one that I like:
2 lbs chuck roast - cut into small cubes
1.5 lbs ground sausage
1 bottle or dark beer (actually only need about 1/2 - 3/4 of it)
one large can whole, peeled tomatoes
assorted peppers - hot
105 cloves of garlic
1 medium onion
spices includes (but not limited to) - chili poweder, hungarian paprika, salt, peper, cumin, oregano, cayenne pepper (I also sometimes add lime juice and cilantro for a unique flavor)
several dashes liquid smoke
sugar and one secret ingrediant - PM for details

Basically season meat pan fry in olive oil
At the same time combine tomatoes, peppers, onion and garlic in food processor (or blender) and mix.
Deglaze browned meat with beer and add blended mix
Add spices to taste and simmer for atleats 1 hour
Add more spices, a fistful of sugar (or some honey) and the secret ingredient.
Continue to cook until you can't wait any longer.
