I posted these on my blog a while ago and i wanted to put them on here to for everyone else, they are very easy.. and that is how i like it!!!
1 lb. Jimmy Dean Maple Sausage
4 reg. size cans red kidney beans, drained
1/2 to 1 whole onion chopped
1 pkg. chili mix
1 jar any kind of salsa
1/2 cup or so sugar
Cook Sausage into bite size pieces. Then combine all ingredients into crock pot and cook 3-4 hours on low.
*The maple sausage can be found by the breakfast bacon at the grocery store, or you can replace it with ground hamburger or ground turkey, i really don't like sausage all that much- but the maple sausage is sooo good... we make tacos with it too.*
*Also, sometimes i will make a little extra chili and then use it as the meat base for Navajo tacos, a couple days later. For those i just buy a big bag of Rhodes rolls and flatten them out and then fry it. Maybe not too healthy, but it tastes really good! I love them with honey butter too!!!*
