comfort food thursday - thanks, switzerland

i wasn't there to taste it, but rumor has it my super talented mom (aka switzerland) made legendary chili last weekend. like so good, people are still talking about it. so, while i have yet to try it out for myself, i trust the glowing reviews from the masses and therefore gladly share her recipe.

there is another rumor floating around that the patriots play this weekend, so i think it might be a slow cooker sunday for us this week. because what goes better with football than legendary chili? i also think the pumpkin bowls in the tablescape below are pretty gosh darn fabulous, don't you?

slow cooker chicken and sausage chili
  • 3 14.5 oz cans diced tomatoes
  • ½ cup beer or red wine
  • ¼ ts hot sauce
  • 2 beef bouillon cubes
  • 1 T brown sugar
  • ½ ts chili powder
  • ½ ts paprika
  • ¼ ts oregano
  • ¼ ts garlic powder
  • 1/8 ts cayenne
Combine and cook on high for one hour.
  • 1 T olive oil
  • ½ red onion, chopped
  • 1 lb chicken thighs, diced
  • ¾ lb Italian sweet sausage
Saute until brown and add to above mixture. Add:
  • 2 6oz cans tomato paste
  • 1 15 oz can kidney beans

Cook 2 hours. Simmer 2 hours. Serves 8. Can easily be made on the stove as well.
