My husband swears by this recipe, he claims its the best thing he’s ever had. The kiddos love it as well. There are a few random additions that many may not typically put in their recipe, but definitely try it out in your next chili recipe.
1 lb. Ground Beef (have used chicken and turkey)
1 Large Onion, diced
2 Cans Chili Beans
1 C Garbonzo Beans, drained
1/4 C Bell Pepper, chopped
1 Can Dark Red Kidney Beans, drained
1 12. oz Can Spicy V8 Juice, optional
1 Can Rotel, Chili Style
1 Can Tomatoes (and kind is fine, I typically use fire roasted, but have use stewed as well)
1/4 C Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 Block Bakers Chocolate (have use semisweet chocolate chips)
Salt and Pepper to taste
-Cook ground meat and onion in saucepan until brown. Add all other ingredients to crockpot, add in meat. Cook on low over night( I typically cook low for 8 hours, then warm til ready to eat). Its my opinion that the longer this cooks the better it gets. If you like your chili less thick, simply add a bit of water to thin out the mix.
-Served best with chips, sour cream and even shredded cheese.
