Super Superbowl Chili

What goes better with football than chili? Not much really. I make my chili vegetarian and then cook some beef on the side for Joey to add in to his. But you could totally make this recipe with beef in it front the start - or you could add chicken.

Pepper added by Joey - None - this is spicy enough on its own

1 spanish onion (or you could do half spanish and half red)
1 green pepper
1 red pepper
5 celery stalks
5 mushrooms
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon cayene pepper powder
Salt and pepper
Dash hot pepper sauce
1 large can diced tomatoes
2 cans brown beans in tomato sauce
1.5 cans red kidney beans (not drained)
1 can pasta sauce (plain)

Saute the onions, celery and peppers until the onions are soft. Season with salt and pepper and a dash of the chili powder and cayene powder.

Add in diced tomatoes and cook on medium for 5 minutes. Add in pasta sauce and cook for another 10 minutes stirring occasionally.

Add in brown beans and kidney beans. Bring to a boil and then simmer on low for at least on hour. Add in remaining spices and hot pepper sauce with 45 mintes left in cooking. Taste to make sure it is hot enough for you.

Add in sliced mushrooms with 30 minutes left in cooking time.
