Grand Champion Chili

I found this recipe in the Richardson East cookbook, Cooking at Richardson East: A Taste of Heaven. It's Teresa McAfee's chili recipe, on page 63. I made it on Halloween evening & took it to a friend's house for dinner. It received tons of rave reviews & requests for the recipe.

2 lbs. ground beef
2 lbs. Cajun-style sausage
2 c. chopped onion
2 (28-oz.) cans pinto beans
2 (28-oz.) cans dices tomatoes, undrained
1 c. Heinz ketchup
2 T. chili powder
4 tsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. McIlhenny Farms spicy brown mustard
1 tsp. salt

Combine ground beef, sausage and onion. Brown in skillet; drain. Drain pinto beans, reserving liquid. Add liquid to meat mixture; stir in remaining ingredients, except beans. Cover and simmer at least 45 minutes (longer to bring out flavors). Stir in beans and cook an additional 15 minutes.

(I didn't have spicy brown mustard, so I just used plain 'ol yellow mustard.)
