If you read my earlier post Creamy Pesto Gnocchi with Italian Sausage, you might remember me telling you about the Johnsonville  Chili Swap Challenge - #JohnsonvilleSausageSwap on Pinterest.  For full details visit Johnsonville's Site about it, or check out my Creamy Pesto Gnocchi with Italian Sausage post.  It's simple really, Follow the Johnsonville Pinterest Board, find a great chili recipe anywhere on Pinterest, pin the recipe with the #JohnsonvilleSausageSwap tag added, hop over to the Johnsonville Sausage Swap site and paste in the URL of your pin and VIOLA - you're entered!  You don't even have to make the recipe (though you might want to)!  The winner will get a 6 quart Crock Pot and 5 coupons for FREE Johnsonville Ground Sausage.  This ends November 22, 2013 - so hop right over to Pinterest and get entered!
So, in the spirit of slow cooker chili making, I decided to make my final Johnsonville sponsored recipe for October a chili in the slow cooker.  The original Johnsonville Chiliville Chili recipe on is not made in the slow cooker, but it's very easy to take a chili recipe and adjust it for the Crock Pot.

I only made a few adjustments to the recipe.  I put it in the slow cooker, of course, but I also used 1 can red kidney beans and 2 cans of northern white beans, for variety, instead of just 2 cans of red kidney.  I also used plain diced tomatoes, because that is what I had on hand (and as I always say, I believe in using what's available).  Since I didn't have the diced tomatoes with green peppers and onions, I added a green bell pepper, diced. I didn't have any tomato paste, so I left it out.  I used some garlic powder because I didn't have enough cloves, and finally I used 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce (this was an accident, but it turned out yummy, I love Worcestershire sauce, so I left it in my version of the recipe).
I really enjoyed working with Johnsonville this month, they have been an awesome sponsor.  Don't forget to keep a package of your favorite Italian Sausage links or Brats in your fridge, just in case.  I love them for a late night snack, or as an addition to my ground beef in recipes.

About Me
About the ONLY thing I don't like about cooking is the HEAT!! I'm not sure why, but I get very easily overheated. I usually sit while cooking, and have a fan blowing directly on me if available. I've been thinking about renaming myself - thehotchef - lol. It's a little better in winter, but I live in Albuquerque, NM - it never gets REALLY cold here, and my body just seems to want to overheat when I get busy in the kitchen! That's one of the reasons I like to divide my kitchen work into 2 or 3 parts at a time. One day I chop the veggies, the next day I roast the veggies, and the 3rd day I put together the lasagna and bake, for example.
My favorite things to cook
Bread, black bottom banana cream pie, fruit salad, beef stroganoff. I like to try something new for Thanksgiving every year.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom's tea ring, macoroni/potato salad, bread, BRINING the Thanksgiving turkey.
My cooking triumphs
Best pies ever!
My cooking tragedies
My husband likes his own cooking better than mine! So much so that he is willing to make dinner for our family everyday - that's just fine with me!
