Don’t let the name fool you or scare you…..it’s an awesome alternative to chili.
1 cup chopped onion
1 tsp garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
1 16 oz jar Picante Sauce
1 lb Italian Sausage (ground)
1 pkg Smoke Sausage
2 cans of black beans
1 can of beer
1 bundle of cilantro (finely chopped)
Brown the Italian sausage and smoke sausage in separate skillets, drain and set aside. In a large pot, saute onions and garlic in olive oil until tender, add the beans and cook for about 10 minutes. Add picante sauce and cook 5 minutes, then add cilantro and 1/2 can of beer. Add meat and simmer on low for an additional 10 minutes.
Note ~ on the beer, I buy the 20 oz can verses buying a six pack.
