Meaty Chili


I have TONS of meat in my freezer I’m trying to use up, so I thought to make a massive amount of chili. The recipe I got from Mom is from Silver pallet, but it’s for 35-40 people… So I tried to cut it down but it still tasted REALLY season-ey so I ended up adding more tomatoes, wine and another pound of meat… needless to say it made a tonnn. This is a 6-quart stockpot and you can see how filled up this bad-boy is.

At any rate, I brought a bunch into work and gave the rest to friends & family. I put Venison Sausage in there too so extra delish. Has a nice kick at the end and is SUPER flavorful.


  • olive oil
  • 1 lb chopped yellow onions
  • 1 lb sausage
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 (12oz) can tomato paste
  • 2 TBsp garlic
