Pizza Chili

As I promised here is my adapted version of this pizza chili recipe.  I can't even begin to explain to you how good this tasted, and yes it tastes just like pizza and will get rid of your pizza cravings.  We have a full weekend coming up which includes making Moosewood's Hungarian mushroom soup for friends on Saturday, and a Super Bowl party for which I am still trying to figure out what to make...any suggestions?  In other news next week is Dumpling week here in PDX and I can't wait to get out and eat them all, here is a list of the participating restaurants.  Speaking of dumplings I am overdue for another dumpling cooking day...perhaps this will happen soon!

Serves 6

The Ingredients

1 lb ground beef
1 lb hot Italian sausage
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 small can of sliced black olives
1 package of pepperoni, sliced & diced
4 cups of marinara sauce
2 cups chicken broth
Mozzarella cheese
sea salt, basil, red pepper flakes (to taste)

The Process

1) In a large pot, cook bell peppers, garlic, and onions in a small amount of the fat of your choice until they begin to sweat. Add ground meats and cook until browned.

2) Stir in olives, pepperoni, marinara sauce, and broth. Bring to a boil. Add salt, basil, and red pepper flakes to taste. Allow flavors to mingle over medium heat for 5-10 minutes.

3) Reduce heat and serve in bowls, topped with optional mozzarella cheese.
