Hey...this is the day we all look forward too..."Game Day". For some reason it doesn't matter what the score is because at half time it's all about the food. This recipe is a great crowd-pleaser and easy on the budget as well. Enjoy!

GAME DAY CHILI: 1 pound ground beef
1 pound ground Italian sausage
2 cans diced tomatoes (14oz.chili ready)
2 cans chili w/beans (16oz mild)
2 cans pinto beans (16oz.w/onions)
1 can ranch style beans (14oz.)
1 can diced tomatoes & green chilies (mild)
2 cans tomato sauce (basil/garlic/oregano)
1 can tomato paste (basil/garlic/oregano)
Chili powder
1 small chopped onion

In a large pot saute chopped onion in olive oil until tender. Add ground beef and sausage with about one tsp of chili powder and cook on medium heat until done. Depending on the fat content of meat you may want to drain some off but leave some for seasoning. Add canned diced tomatoes,chili w/beans,ranch style beans,diced tomatoes and green chilies all undrained. Now drain the can of pinto beans before adding to pot.Next add tomato sauce and paste stirring well. Season with chili seasoning to your liking. Simmer on low/medium for about 2-3 hours to let the flavors come together...stirring occasionally.

TWIST: After you have cooked meat and added tomatoes,sauces,chilies,seasoning, you can put everything in a crock pot on low for 2-3 hours as well.

SERVING TIP: I like to have a bowl of chopped onions for the one's that like that extra "kick" in their chili. A bowl of shredded cheddar cheese for topping as well. Serve chili with saltines or corn bread for that extra touch.
Now for dessert... remember my cookie recipe that you can make into ice-cream sandwiches? Well, this is when it comes into "Play" for your "Big man" on game day!!!
