4 cups beef broth

1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

INSTRUCTIONS
Place ground beef, sausage, onion, and bell pepper in a large Dutch oven. Cook, breaking meat apart, until meat is cooked through. Drain off excess fat.


Add garlic and cook 1 minute.


Add broth, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, black-eyed peas, oregano, chili powder, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.

NOTES
Note: Remove black-eyed peas and corn from freezer before you start the recipe so they can start thawing. It's ok to add them to the chili when they are still partially frozen.
