Heat a large pot of water to boiling and boil the Italian sausage links for 7-10 minutes. Then, drain sausage and allow it to cool.
In large dutch oven or kettle, brown the ground beef in the olive oil. Drain off most, but not all, of the grease. Slice the Italian sausage links and add to the ground beef. Add the canned products to the kettle in the order given. Then add the chopped vegetables. Next, add the dry spices, one at a time. Finally, stir in the liquid smoke, the cayenne sauce and the shot of whiskey.
Bring chili to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, stirring frequently, for one hour, allowing chili to thicken slightly.
Serve chili on top of spaghetti with a sprinkling of cheddar cheese.
I made this recipe today and it was a hit!!!
For the Italian Sausage, I poked holes in it before I boiled them so more of the grease would drain out. I ended up using 2 lbs of Johnsonvilles because they were sold in 1lb packages and I didn’t have a use for the other 1/2 lb.
I started to brown the meat and drained out as much of the grease as possible. Then I added the onion and let the onion cook some of the flavor into the meat. Then I added a little garlic. Then I added 1 teaspoon of liquid smoke instead of 1/2 since I like the flavor.
During the last 30 minutes of cooking, I added 2 cans of cut up mushrooms. I also had to use just a little bit of salt and black pepper.
Over all very good!!!
