Meal Prep: New Chili Attempt!

I am a huge fan of my turkey chili! I make it for our house almost every other week! 

This week was a little different...

We had so much left over sausage from our 4th of July BBQ I decided to chop it up and use that instead of ground turkey!

Here's what I started with: 

-1 can diced tomatoes
-1 can black beans
-1 can kidney beans
-1 can chili peppers
-1/2 can of jalapeños
-2 fresh bell peppers
-2 fresh carrots 

Next, I cut up a package of sausages that had been left over: 

I basically quartered the sausages and then added them to the batch of ingredients:

First I brought everything to a boil, and after that, let it simmer for a few hours ( I don't have a crockpot yet!). 

It got a little more soupy than the traditional ground turkey recipe. I think the sausages sweat out more than the turkey. 

In the end it came out great!

Simple and yummy! What more could you ask for!?

What's your favorite chili recipe!?
