Meaty Mushroom Chili

Like all good chili, this has no beans.  It features sliced mushrooms, though. I often use pre-sliced because I’m lazy, but generally, slicing your own is cheaper and has better flavor.  My daughter doesn’t like capsaicin so we tend toward sweet Italian sausage but any kind works.  I buy it in bulk, not in casings, but if yours is in links, remove the casings before browning.
