miracle soup

tonight, i guess you would say i had "cooker's block". i just could not figure out what i wanted to cook and i have a fear of wasting food.. so i used the "use what you've got" method with my hands over my eyes . so i threw in a bunch of different things that were somewhat familiar to one another and i called it:

miracle soup: miracle soup because it was going to be a miracle if it actually turned out good! and it did, so that's why i'm sharing my made-up recipe, otherwise you wouldn't know anything about it... 

miracle soup

what you need:
1 lbs. ground beef
1 lbs.  (add as much as you like) pork sausage ( links )
1 can Hormel chili ( no beans ) unless you like beans
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1 pkg. taco seasoning
a pinch or two of cayenne pepper
a few shakes of ground onion flakes
a few sprinkles of Tony's cajun seasoning
salt and pepper
1 can water ( use the Rotel tomatoes can)

here's what i did:
first, brown ground beef in large skillet
add half of your pkg. of taco seasoning and onion flakes and stir
add (cut-up)pork sausage; brown also

in a medium boiler add:
can of chili
can of rotel
the remaining half of taco seasoning pkg.
cayenne pepper
salt and pepper
Tony's cajun seasoning

bring to a good simmer then add ground beef and pork sausage to boiler
cover then serve


i thought a topping would make it look pretty so i crushed up a good 
handful of tortilla chips and topped that off with a good sprinkle of shredded cheese. 
i so overused the word good.
but it's good!
