Pork and Ground Beef Chili


1 pound pork sausage
1 pound ground beef
2 16 ounce cans red kidney beans, drained
2 16 ounce cans tomatoes, diced
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
1 6 ounce can tomato paste
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons chili powder


Brown pork sausage and ground beef in heavy skillet. Drain off any excess fat. (Note: if you used grassfed beef you will find little or no fat. The pork sausage will yield some fat, however.)
