  1. Heat a very large skillet over medium heat. Add beef and sausage; cook and stir until browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain excess grease and transfer to a large pot.
  2. Heat olive oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Add bell peppers, Anaheim chile peppers, onion, jalapeno peppers, and garlic; cook and stir until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Stir into beef mixture.
  3. Stir chili beans, diced tomatoes, kidney beans, tomato paste, chili powder, cumin, salt, cayenne, black pepper, and cinnamon into the beef and peppers mixture. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low and cover; simmer, stirring occasionally, until flavors combine, about 3 hours.
