    Re: Anyone got a recipe for...

    I use Jimmy Dean mild and I also use ground pork with my ground beef. Sometimes I will add ground chicken or turkey to it and have all kinds of meat. My son in law uses polish sausage chopped up or kielbasa. His is a conglomerate of all kinds of things but tastes good. If I am going plain I don't use any kind of green or red pepper but always use onion. I also use chili powder and tomato juice. My bunch doesn't like chunk tomatoes in it.

    I've used the tomato juice before; I wonder how V-8 would work. I love it, so I could drink what was left over!

    Do you use the whole package of sausage?

    Yes a lb. of sausage. I think v8 would work great.

    Re: Anyone got a recipe for...

    My uncle used to use V8 juice for his chili. I use stewed and/or diced tomatoes.

    As for the term "sweet" with regard to food ... my Grandmother called mild Italian sausage "sweet" sausage as opposed to the hot.
    It never tasted sugar sweet!

    It wasn't until I visited a friend in Utah that I discovered that sweet Italian sausage and mild Italian sausage aren't always the same thing, at least not in different parts of the country. (It totally threw off the sauce I made for her because even the mild had a bit of a bite.)

    Sweet sausage (here, at least) isn't sugary-sweet, it's just not spicy. At all.

    BTW, if you have a preference for what you like in your sausage, it's really easy to make...just get ground pork and add the spices you like.

    Re: Anyone got a recipe for...

    I can't imagine not using diced or stewed tomatoes in chili. I don't like the idea of a "liquid" chili. For me, it needs some "body". Like, I HATE the chili from Wendy's, but people really seem to like it. Blech! I don't even start to understand that.

    I do really like sweet Italian sausage, but I like it as a stand-alone meat. Interesting that "sweet" and "mild" are not the same thing. What is the difference?

    And my spaghetti needs to be wheat, but I can tolerate the regular, ho-hum spaghetti.

    I use the canned dice tomatoes that have "zesty" peppers in them. I also add some cilantro. When I have been in the mood for chili but was out of diced tomatoes I have used V8. I have also made a single serving of chili using salsa. I always add green peppers and sometime red and yellow ones as well. That's the fun of chili. If you like it, use it!

    Re: Anyone got a recipe for...

    I've never heard of anyone making a single serving of chili! When I make it, I need to have it around for several days, and I can eat it at every meal! I adore it!

    I don't think I'd know the taste of cilantro if it walked up and laid on my tongue. I've also never seen diced tomatoes with "zesty" peppers. Is that anythng like Rotel? I love Rotel. I make queso with that and Velveeta, or Velveeta's country cousin....the store brand.

    Here's one more question: Do you cook your spaghetti IN your chili, or do you cook it separately?

    There is mild Italian sausage sold at some Italian Deli's that doesn't taste like what my grandma called sweet. With us there was no in between it was sweet or hot.

    I think the difference may be in the region in Italy that the sausage maker comes from .... just like the differences in pasta sauce.

    One thing that adds sweetness to sausage might be the amount of fennel seed ... which I love.

    Also making your own sausage is a good idea ... but my aunt used to buy it bulk not in the casing, and/or make her own and it tasted quite different.

    I think when it is in the casing it 'cures' a little and the flavors "blend".
