Ranch Ready Chili w/Red Pepper Butter for yer Cornbread...

This is hearty, rib stick'n chili. Easy to fix when you have a big crew to feed. It may be made ahead, which will blend the seasonings to perfection.
So simple, basically an open and dump recipe....so enjoy!
I usually have photos of the ingredients, but...I lost them some how when transferring photos.
So, I am not including them in this recipe post. SORRY for the inconvenience. :(
Ranch Ready Chili : 
1 Large family size tin of chili beans (I used Dennison's)
1 large can of Ranch Beans
2 cans of white kidney beans or white beans
1 can of red kidney beans
Open and dump in a large stock pot and stir together. Do not drain any of the beans.
1 large yellow onion, chopped
2 green apples, peeled and chopped fine
1 of each; yellow, red and green bell pepper, chopped
1 heaping teaspoon of prepared minced garlic
Add to the bean mixture and stir
1 lb of ground hamburger, cooked and crumbled
1 package of hot sausage, (I used a jalapeno sausage, which had 4 in the pack), chop into bite size pieces 
Stir into the Chili bean pot.
Season with garlic pepper to taste. Stir again.
Let simmer until heated through and serve. * It tastes better the longer you cook it, giving it time to blend. The apple cooks down and adds a unique flavor to the chili.
Serve with corn bread and red pepper butter! 
 See the butter recipe below....
Red Pepper Butter :
2 cubes of butter, softened
1 tablespoon of diced pimento's or 3 strips of marinated red bell pepper, diced
1 teaspoon of chives
Garlic Pepper to taste
Blend together well and serve with your favorite corn bread.
This is a recipe I have served often for branding's or ranch/family gathering's.
It is always well received...
