  1. Heat a large stock pot over medium-high heat. Place the ground chuck and sausage into the pan and cook until they are evenly browned.
  2. Pour in the chili beans, diced tomatoes, spicy chili beans, and tomato paste. Add the onion, celery, bacon bits, bouillon, chili peppers, green and red bell peppers. Season it with chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, oregano, basil, hot pepper sauce, cumin, cayenne, pepper, paprika, salt, and sugar. Stir to blend, then cover and let simmer over low heat for at least two hours, stirring occasionally.
  3. After two hours, taste the chili and add whatever condiments you deem necessary: Salt, pepper, hot sauce, and chili powder if necessary. The longer you let the chili simmer, the better it will taste! Remove from heat and serve.

  • “When we want develop partnerships with vendors, the deciding factor is always based on a single question…Do they pick up their phone? At Risk Management, they pick up their phone. In the indoor trampoline park industry, we have dealt with several insurance agencies that were always more concerned about their commission, not building a business relationship or serving our needs. On more than one occasion, Risk Management has stepped in and helped us with carrier/policies issues that the incumbent agencies had dropped the ball on. There was no financial reward for Risk Management in these situations, they see a problem and help fix it. They just do business the right way. Steve Young and his team at Risk Management represent us, not the carrier. We highly recommend Risk Management.”
