  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 1/2 pound andouille sausage, chopped
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground chicken
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground pork
  • 3 ribs celery, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons hot sauce, such as Frank’s RedHot or Tabasco
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder

  • 2 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper

  • 1 can crushed tomatoes (28 ounces)

Heat the EVOO in a large Dutch oven pot and cook the andouille sausage for about 2 minutes. Add the ground chicken and pork in an even layer; do not overcrowd the pot. Break up the meat with the back of a wooden spoon and scrape up the bits at the bottom. Continue to cook until all the meat is super-duper brown. To the pot, add the celery, onion, green bell pepper and garlic; cook for 3-4 minutes.

Add the hot sauce, thyme, chili powder, cumin, paprika and cayenne and continue cooking for another minute. Pour in the stock, crushed tomatoes and tomato sauce; bring to a bubble and turn down to a simmer. Let cook for another 20 minutes, or until reduced.

Season the chili with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve with some crushed corn chips and chopped scallions on top.
