Three-Meat Chili

1 lb lean ground beef
1 lb ground turkey
1 lb sausage
1 large onion, diced
5 cloves garlic, pressed
1 bell pepper (green or red)
5 Tbsp chli powder
a pinch or two of cinnamon
3 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1/2 palmful ground Chipotle Chile Pepper
1 large can Chili Hot beans
1 large can Chili Mild beans
1 can Great Northern Beans, not drained
1 can Black Beans, not drained
2 cans fire roasted tomatoes, not drained
1 large can crushed tomatoes
1 bottle beer

Brown all meats in a large stock pot over medium heat. Remove cooked meat to a dish and keep warm. In same pot, using a little of the fat rendered from the meats, saute onion, peppers and garlic until soft and translucent. Add browned meats and seasonings, stirring to coat. Pour in remaining ingredients, stir to combine. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until heated through. The longer it sits on the stove, the better it tastes!

Variation: Add diced zucchini or frozen corn to bump up veggie factor.
