Pizza Chili

The original recipe for Pizza chili was so thick that it was more like the consistency of sloppy joes, not chili.  I had to add a minimum of 4 cups of stock to thin it out.  Just keep adding liquid until the soup becomes your preferred consistency.

Pizza Chili adapted from The girl who ate everything
2 lb ground beef
1 lb sausage
4oz  oz sliced pepperoni, halved
1 lg  onion, chopped
1 red pepper, seeded and chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 jar (16 ounces) salsa
1 1/2 c cooked pinto beans
1 1/2 c cooked black beans
1 jar pizza sauce
1 cup water
4 c stock as needed
2 t chili powder
1 t dried oregano
1/2 t  salt
1/2 t pepper
3 c (12 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
In a large soup pot, cook beef, sausage, pepperoni, onion, green pepper and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in salsa, beans, pizza sauce, water, stock, chili powder, oregano, salt and pepper. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle servings with cheese.

This also makes a great baked potato topper!
