Homemade Chili

1 lb each of cooked ground pork & beef sausage (or cooked shredded pork roast)
1 can chili or black beans-drained
1 large onion-chopped & sauteed
2-3 cloves garlic - chopped & sauteed
1 can tomato sauce
1 bottle amber or stout beer
1 large can Spicy V8
3-4 TBSP tomato paste
1 can green chilies

mustard powder - 1 tsp
black pepper - 1 or 2 tsp
chili powder - 2 TBSP
cumin - 1 tsp
cayenne - 1 tsp
savory - 1 tsp
*red pepper flakes - 2 tsp (optional)
salt to taste
Tabasco - a few splashes

*1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (optional)

Combine meat, beer, beans, V8, tomato paste, onion and garlic in slow cooker. In a large bowl mix together the tomato sauce, green chilies, seasonings and Tabasco - stir into meat mixture. A few hours into cooking, add the peanut butter and stir well - it gives the chili an nice creamy and thicker texture.

Add or eliminate any ingredients to suit your own tastes. Chili is a very personal thing, so make it to make YOU happy!
