Brown ground beef and sausage in a pan with dry seasonings to your liking, such as garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, etc. Drain and add to large crock pot. 

Add the rest of your ingredients: vegetables, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, more seasonings, bouillon cubes, broth, hot sauce, Worcestershire , cocoa powder, and apple cider vinegar. Season more to your liking. I tend to add more dry seasonings and more hot sauce. 

Let sit on low all day (6-8 hours) and serve with your favorite toppings and cornbread or Saltine crackers.
