I received this recipe from my sister-in-law's friend and she is from Poland. It has fresh chilies and tomatoes, along with beef and polish sausage. This is a really good, different chili recipe.

Instructions Checklist
  • Place the ground beef into a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring to crumble, until beef is no longer pink. Drain off excess grease, leaving just enough to coat the bottom of the pot. Add the polish sausage, onion and garlic to the pot; cook and stir until onion is tender. Mix in the Anaheim, yellow and jalapeno peppers, tomatoes and tomatillos. Simmer over medium heat for about 20 minutes.

This chili is fabulous! I have a Hungarian wax pepper plant that had three gorgeous peppers on it and this is the recipe I decided to use them in. I substituted ground turkey breast for the beef and light Polish kielbasa to make this chili really healthy. Also by mistake I used Cubanelle peppers instead of Anahiem (although they are almost identical in taste). What also drew me to this recipe was the lack of salt as we are on a very low sodium diet. I was really nervous because there was no liquid other than the vinegar but the tomatillos and the tomatoes gave off a lot. The end result was a medium spicy delicious chili with great flavor! I did sprinkle in some cumin after tasting but that is just personal preference. Thank you for the recipe! Read More

Made as stated except I added only 1/3 cup vinegar and still found it to have too much of a vinegar taste. It over-powered the other flavors. I feel this would be better with much less of vinegar or none at all. Definitely different. I brought this to work for a chili cook off and only 2 people really liked it. Read More

I have also entered this in to chili cook-offs and won in the unique categories. I give the recipe to anyone that asks and there are quite a few. Thank you for this wonderful recipe. Read More

I was amazed while eating that I didn't need salt and I salt my tortilla chips. I too substituted ground turkey for the ground beef and used smoked polish sausage. I had to use a poblano for my 4th Anaheim pepper. May try some garden cabbage next time also. Served with rye bread and drank beer with it. Wonderful recipe. Read More

i ended up buying fewer veggies than the recipe called for. i also added more tomato sauce in the end to make it more soupy. i didn't have to add any salt to the mix but i liked it that way. i also used kielbasa mixed with turkey for a healthier version. in the end it was delish!! Read More

Really good chili different flavor. I used turkey kielbasa habaneros for the Anaheim chiles and skipped the tomatillos (we are not fans of those). This was delicious although not spicy. Definitely worth trying. Read More

This was a hit! I didn't have pimentos so I omitted them and I added a can of tomato paste to thicken it up. I also used 4 green tomatoes since I am growing tomatoes and all the peppers that the recipe asked for. Oh I also used 1/4 cup red wine vinegar instead of regular. One of my kids thought it was the best thing I've ever made. Read More
