Our Awesomism Texas Chili

If you’re like us, you really love smoked brisket… My husband makes one of the best smoked briskets, I’ve ever had in my life. I was never really all that much into brisket, and can honestly tell you that I hadn’t had it a lot, before I moved to Texas. Now I’ve become a huge fan of it. We have a Traeger grill which is one of the best for smoking brisket… Well, actually I love our Traeger grill for everything. Unless you have a big family or you wanna freeze some of your brisket, you’re going to have brisket left over. Here is a really (awesomism) recipe that I kind of threw together myself for our version of Texas chili. I add the ground beef with the Brisket because it is what Peyton loves….

This is an easy recipe and awesome for this time of the year! it’s quick

Remember this is using leftover brisket…

Here are ingredients of making Texas Chili:

  • 1 lb smoked brisket cut into small thin  cubes
  • 1 lb ground beef … I cook this before time, so it is fully cooked and browned
  • 1 large white onion diced
  • 1 green bell pepper diced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper diced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 15 oz can Ranch Style beans
  • 1 15.5 oz can Buffalo Beans
  • 1 cup grated pepper jack cheese
  • 1 24 oz can of tomato sauce
  • 1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp  chili powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp brown mustard
  • 1 tbsp pepper
  • 2 Tbsp water

Throw it all together… again make sure that the ground beef and brisket is fully cooked first! I dump everything into a crock pot and cook it on High for 2 hours and medium for 6… checking every so often and stirring… when checking.

I add 1/2 cup of the grated pepper jack cheese 1/2 way through and put the rest on top after it is done! I love sour cream and tortilla chips with mine as well. Please note that the cheese can be eliminated if you want.

As always… all disclaimers for food apply… have to put that on here! ; )

Thanks so much for reading my blog and following me and Peyton on our 45 Awesomism Days of the Holidays…
