Spicy Creole Chili

Spicy Creole Chili

It differs from the usual chili because it uses a mix of chicken and sausage meat. I use andouille sausage which is coarse-grained and smoked. It’s typically associated. I simply cook the sausage meat and chicken and I add onion, green bell pepper, tomatoes, black beans, chili powder and other spices to make a spicy chili with a difference.

I like my chili to be hot so in addition to the 2 teaspoons of chili powder in the recipe, I add a few extra dashes of hot sauce. But that’s not to everyone’s taste so it’s best to suit yourself. This is a great midweek meal as it’s super quick and easy to make.
