Easy Gluten Free Sausage Chili

Easy Gluten Free Sausage Chili
 
Ingredients
  • 1 lb bag dried red beans or 3 cans cooked red beans
  • 2 rolls Gwaltney or other gluten free mild sausage
  • 2 large can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can rotel tomatoes with green chilis
  • 1 large sweet onion
  • 3 green peppers
  • 2 jalapenos or chiles deseeded and diced (optional)
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ⅛ tsp smoked paprika
Instructions
  1. Rinse red beans and cover with 2 inches hot water in the bottom of your stock pot. Bring them to a low boil uncovered for 2 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and cover pot. Leave covered for around an hour. This will quick soak your beans for cooking in the chili.
  3. Fry up the two rolls of sausage.
  4. Open the cans of tomatoes and Rotel.
  5. Roughly chop the onion and green peppers.
  6. Deseed and finely dice the chilis or jalapenos.
  7. Throw everything except the spices in a large stock pot on the stove. (I like to save the spices for the last 15 to 30 minutes of cooking so the flavors don't get lost.)
  8. Bring pot to a boil and then turn down to a simmer. Simmer covered for around 2 hours stirring occasionally.
  9. Around the 2 hour mark test the beans for doneness. If they are to your liking go ahead and add the spices. Simmer for an additional 15 to 30 minutes.
