Thick Oven-Baked Chili
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 pound lean ground beef
1 pound ground sausage (we used turkey sausage)
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans (15 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (14 ounces) diced tomatoes
1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
1 can (4 ounces) green chilies
2 bay leaves
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. chili powder (or more to taste)
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
2. In a dutch oven over medium heat, warm oil. Saute beef, sausage, onion and garlic until meat is no longer pink and onion is tender, about 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
3. Cover and bake 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Uncover and bake 30 minutes longer. Remove bay leaf and discard.
4. Serve, topped with sour cream, sliced green onions or grated cheddar cheese.
