Quick fix chile

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1½ pounds Lean hamburger; not more than 15 % fat
½ pounds Cajun sausage; if link style remove the casings
1 large Onion; diced
10½ ounce Chicken broth
1 large Ripe tomato; diced
8 ounces Canned tomato sauce
7 ounces Mexican salsa; 1 can Embassa brand
1 tablespoon Plus 2 tsp Mexican Chile Powder; Schilling's hot
1 tablespoon Plus l tsp cumin; ground
1 teaspoon Garlic powder;Lawry's coarse ground with parsley
1 teaspoon Dried marjoram flakes
3 teaspoons Diced jalapenos; canned Ortega brand
7 ounces Diced green chiles; canned Ortega brand
½ cup Water
30 ounces Canned pinto beans; Ranch Style brand with jalapenos with their liquid
½ teaspoon Cayenne pepper powder
Salt and pepper; to taste

In a large pot saute the hamburger, Cajun sausage and onions until almost all the liquid is gone. Stir constantly to crumble the hamburger and sausage. If you purchase Cajun link sausage remove the casings prior to cooking. Add all the remaining ingredients except the pinto beans and simmer until most of the vegetables have cooked and blended together. About 30 minutes. Add the beans and simmer until heated through. Salt and pepper to taste. Serves 8.

NOTES : Note - If it starts to get too dry add a little more water. If a less spicy chile is desired, omit the cayenne pepper or add pinto beans without jalapenos in them. This should only take about 1 hour to prepare.

This is quick and easy but very tasty.
