Crock Pot Chili- Sweet and Spicy

Updated on January 31, 2015
5 stars from 1 rating of chili

Alternative ingredients and dinner ideas

This chili recipe is great on a rainy and cold day. It can be prepared easily in the morning and be ready by the time you eat dinner.

There are some different add-ons to this recipe. My dad adds mushrooms to his chili but I prefer not to. I enjoy my chili flavored with anaheim peppers and/or poblano peppers. My father and brothers prefer their chili flavored with jalapenos and habaneros. That is way too hot for me but they enjoy it. The brown sugar can also be adjusted to taste. I like mine to have a sweet kick to it.

This chili can be poured on top of Fritos for a tasty Frito chili pie. It is also yummy with sharp cheddar sprinkled on top. For the kids, I like to make hot dogs. The chili makes a very good chili dog.

Whatever your add-on or toppings this chili is sure to please. On top of that, it is extremely easy. So I hope you enjoy.

Yummy and filling dinner

      Yeah, I guess it wouldn't be chili without the beans. It be more of a spaghetti sauce. It is good. We make it for Super Bowl Sunday and it is always a hit. Maybe he will come around.
