White Bean and Sausage Chili

There is nothing better than a comforting pot of chili just about any time of the year, and we do love our chili here at the cottage. This recipe is a hearty chili with a bold flavor and is a little different because I used sausage for the meat in the chili and it is fantastic! I knew it was going to be a great recipe when I could smell it cooking and folks coming in the door would say, what in the world smells so good? We really enjoyed this recipe and sure hope you do!

White Bean and Sausage Chili
Miz Helen's Kitchen
1 pound dried Navy Beans
1 pound country (a pork and sage blend) sausage
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
2 cans (10 ounce) tomatoes and green chili's
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon lime juice for each serving
Green onions, chopped for garnish
1 cup cheddar cheese shredded, for garnish
I use the Quick Soak Method for my beans.
Sort and wash the beans.
Pour the beans in a large pot with 6 to 8 cups hot water and bring to a rolling boil.
Boil for 2 minutes, then cover the beans and remove from the heat.
Let stand for 1 hour, drain and rinse the soaked beans.
While the beans are draining, in the same bean pot, brown the sausage.
When the sausage is browned, add the onion and cook until clear.
Add the tomatoes and green chilies, mixing well.
Add the beans,garlic,salt, pepper,chili powder and cumin. Mix the seasons into the beans and sausage.
Pour in 2 cups chicken broth and 4 cups water, mix well.
Cover and cook on low to simmer for 2 hours.
Or in a Slow Cooker on low for 3 hours.

This recipe freezes very well for up to 3 months.
