This recipe features 12 different kinds of peppers, including 10 varieties of hot peppers. It's mad, wicked good, but not for the faint of heart. It's extra hot and spicy, just the way I like it! It can be served over macaroni, or simply eaten by itself.

Place the ground beef and sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until crumbly and evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain. Place the ground beef, sausage, tomatoes, kidney beans, chili beans, black beans, black-eyed peas and cola in a large, heavy pot, and simmer over medium heat. Place the red, yellow and green bell peppers, yellow and red onions, and garlic on top of the bean and meat mixture. Cover and steam for at least 15-20 minutes, then stir. Stir in the jalapeno, chipotle, serrano, habanero, hungarian wax, cherry, Anaheim, and cayenne peppers. Season with chili powder, cumin, red pepper flakes, and taco seasoning, and desired amount of salt, black pepper and ground red pepper. Cover, and simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
