People's Choice Chili Recipe, nothing vegan about this. It has always been #glutenfree though.

People's Choice Chili Recipe or 5 meat chili
I've been the worst Grand son ever.  My grandpafer has been asking for this recipe for so long.  This due to All of my trips, my tech breaking down, and me just forgetfully not posting. Here is the recipe.

Ingredients for a single big batch, not our usual three to five gallon batch. This is also the easy method.
Large Pot
BBQ-my fave method

Beans with juice

Pinto 1
Black 1
Red Kidney 1
Chili  2

Onions Red and Sweet yellow 1 and 1half coarse and half fine, to be cooked with the meats.
Garlic 2 clove crushed and reserved for the meat cooking
Jalapeno 1 finely chopped
Bell Pepper 2 coarse chopped
Anaheim Pepper 2 coarse chopped
Can of stewed tomatoes with juice
can of diced tomato and peppers with juice

Sausage links
Sage 2
Hot 2
Andoulle 1

Ground Round .5lb
Ground Chicken .5lb

Chili Powder
Garlic Powder
Black pepper
Cayenne Pepper
Small amount of ginger and masala

In a large skillet or wok, add sausages, and turn on low, the sausages will slow cook, don't poke them just turn them . When we make them on the grill we do it on the top rack and let them slow cook so the juices don't leave the skin. The bbq is the preferred way to make them.

Once the sausages are finished set them aside,
Add the ground chicken, garlic, onion, ground beef to the skillet. Cook on low almost sweating the onion and meat.
This won't take long to slightly brown the meat, leave the ground a little pink as it will cook fully in the simmering process.
Drain the fat and reserve all the meat and veg left in the pot.

Chop the sausages coarsely and place them in the large stock pot.
Add the meat
add all the cans of veggies, and the coarse chopped peppers

Turn the lot of it on low

To the mix you'll add
2 to 5 tablespoons of cumin
.25 cup of chili powder
2 tsp cayenne
.5tsp ginger and masala
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon garlic

Simmer this for an hour, if still watery add the potato flakes a half cup at a time.  Add more spices to taste., NO SALT, there is plenty of salt in the sausages.

I know this isn't a standard recipe, we never had a standard format for making it. We would cook everything and throw it all together.  Cumin and chili powder were our main ingredient
This is where we would just taste and add per our need, if the chili needs to be thickened we would use potato flakes not flour. The flakes leave no flavor but add their thickening power.
