Notes

  • Use mild, medium or hot ground pork sausage.
  • Red, yellow or orange peppers can be used instead of green peppers, if desired.
  • For some extra heat, add a diced jalapeno or ground chili powder to the Chili Skillet recipe.
  • Do not drain the diced, canned tomatoes or the chili beans.
  • This would taste amazing with some cornbread. Try our favorite recipe, Maryann's Sweet Cornbread.
