This is a family favorite from long ago, and still brings happy faces to the table. Even my young nephew (who typically hates vegetables) will smack his lips. This recipe makes a lot, so plan to freeze, or can, the leftovers. I usually make a double batch, then freeze the remainder in a combination of meal size, and single serve, food saver bags. Also very easy to halve.
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 pound ground sausage
- 2 onions, chopped
- 2 bell peppers, chopped
- 2 - 15oz cans whole kernal corn
- 2 - 15oz cans kidney beans
- 2 - 15oz cans diced tomatoes
- 2 - 15oz cans tomato sauce (optional)
- 1/4 cup sugar (don't tell my mom that I told the secret ingredient)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Brown ground beef and sausage, and drain fat.
- Place meats in a large pot (I use a stock pot) and add remaining ingredients, including juices from the cans.
- Cover and allow to simmer for half an hour. If you don't like your peppers and onions to still have a little crunch then simmer until veggies are tender.
- It's great severed with warm cornbread, but can easily stand alone.
