2 links Italian sausage, sliced

2 links fresh chorizo sausage, casing removed

2 links your favorite other sausage (bratwurst, Polish, etc.), sliced

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 cups chopped onion

2 cups chopped celery

1 green pepper seeded and chopped

4 cans (14.5 ounces each) diced tomatoes

1 can (15 ounces) black beans drained

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 tablespoon cumin

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon adobo seasoning

1 teaspoon minced garlic

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown sausages 5-8 minutes. Remove meat to a plate lined with a paper towel; set aside.

Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a large stock pot; add onion, green pepper and celery in the stock pot and cook 3-5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and cooked sausages; stir to combine. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

Serves six to 10.

Cook's note: The bulk chorizo makes the chili a good fall dish. For those with a less hearty appetite, you can skip using the two other sausages.
