Greymo, the sausage sounds good. I have used regular breakfast sausage but not italian. I must try it.
Poppy, pickles, hmm? Dill or sweet?
Donna $ Dreamz, right... Rotel is always good in chili. And right Roossy, It's a standard for lotsa folks. And I like lotsa cuman also.
Kman, a little Jack never hurts anything!
Scarlett, the pineapple could be good?
TJ, cinci chili is great! Lotsa chili parlors there and for a reason.
I threw together a pot of chili stew once and put corn, green beans, ranch style beans, and mushrooms in it! I didn't look that pretty but my guests liked it. I stress... CHILI STEW!
