Old-Fashioned Two-Meat Chili

I found this recipe for old-fashioned two-meat chili over at Drick’s Rambling Cafe, one of my favorite blogs to read. Drick Perry posts the kinds of foods we really enjoy: Cajun, Creole and Southern, among others. This chili has a slight kick, but not so much that it hides all of the great flavors inside. Beans, veggies, V-8 juice, broth, and two kinds of meats (hmmmm… so that’s where the name comes from!) all combine to make something special.

This chili has quite the ingredient list, but it is still easy to make and worth the effort. It makes a big batch, but don’t worry, it won’t last. V-8 juice in a chili is a great thing. I used spicy, of course. I wouldn’t be afraid to add V-8 to your favorite chili recipe.

If you don’t have or can’t find ground pork, substitute Italian sausage. Just crumble it into small pieces before browning.

Also try my southwestern chili with corn chips.
