Sounds mighty good!
Looks good too!
Gotta ask.......the term cajun seasoning is mighty vague, do you use a specific brand or mix your own?

I didn't see any mention of sausage in your ingredient list? Also, where is the celery? In a reply you made in another thread about Cajun potato salad, you wrote that it was not Cajun because it didn't have the trinity. Your chili doesn't have the trinity, so how is it Cajun?

The trinity aka holy trinity is the combination of celery, onion, and bell pepper that makes up the trinity as for the sausage sorry accidentally left that out.
it wont let me so ill just tell you 1/2 lbs of fresh pork sausage

Cajun Seasoning is actually the name of the seasoning

here is a picture there are many brands of Cajun seasoning I believe perfect pinch also makes one If you cant find it don't worry I also know the recipe to make it

Its just that nothing about the recipe seems remotely Cajun. That's all.

Funny, I put celery, onion, and green pepper (as well as many other peppers) in my chili, and I'm on the Canada border of Michigan, far from Cajun Country. I don't put andouille sausage in my chili though. I guess that must be the difference, or defining factor. Also, I tend to not use tomato sauce or paste as they can dominate the other flavors. I simply use diced tomato.

And Craig's point was that you don't have CELERY in your ingredients, yet in another thread you previously wrote you needed to have the trinity in something or it wasn't Cajun. He wasn't asking what the trinity was, nor was he asking about your seasoning mix. So, is celery something else you left out?
