I decided to call this fire house chili to honor my husband, who enjoys spicy food, this my version of a Texas chili.
2 (6oz.) cans of tomato paste 2 lbs. of ground beef 1 tsp. of Cajun seasoning 2 tsp. of Tabasco 1 Tbsp. of sugar 1 jalapeno minced 1 tsp. of garlic salt salt and pepper to taste 2 1/2 cups of beef broth or water 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce 3 tsp. chili powder 2 tsp. paprika 1 1/2 tsp cumin 14 oz. smoked sausage minced
In a large pot over medium heat, brown the beef. Once browned drain the grease and add the sausage and jalapeno stir and let it cook for about five minutes. Now add the spices and letting it cook for a minute or two. Next add the Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce and tomato paste, give it a quick stir before adding the broth/water. Bring the chili to a boil for five to ten minutes; stirring occasionally. Then lower the heat and let simmer for a hour, I like to serve it with corn bread and butter.
