Spicy Chili with Kielbasa

I have been pondering a chili recipe that features one of my favorite meats, kielbasa.  I do love my traditional chili, so I don't want compromise that taste.  This month for Improv Cooking Challenge we were asked to come up with recipes using both Ketchup and Mustard.  So this chili was born!

Do you love kielbasa as much as I do?  I love that it is so convenient and has amazing flavor. In this Spicy Chili with Kielbasa the smokiness adds a depth of flavor to the chili that makes you swoon. I love that you don't have to set up a smoker to get that flavor!

The ketchup and mustard do add a wonderful layer of flavor without having to do a ton of seasoning. It surprised me that it added the "spicy" to the Spicy Chili with Kielbasa recipe!

Sooo.... are you ready to make some chili???
