Cooking Thursday

We had a chili cook-off at work a few weeks ago.  I didn't enter because I was working the night before, but I wouldn't have won anyway - we had one overwhelming winner!  The winner shared her recipe with me and I made it this past weekend.  It's a rich, meaty chili with a bit of a kick!  It filled my 6  quart crockpot, so I have some saved in the freezer for another day.

Prize Winning Chili

3 pounds hamburger, browned and drained
1 onion, chopped and browned
3 envelopes McCormick Tex-Mex chili seasoning
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 cans kidney beans, drained
3 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
3 cans Rotel original tomatoes with green chilies
Stir hamburger, onion, seasoning and brown sugar together in large crock pot.  Add the beans and tomatoes.  Cook on low for 6 hours.  Serve with cheese, sour cream, chopped onion or other toppings of your choice.

John would like the extra kick and I like the different beans combined. Makes me hungry!

Chili has to be hot to go over here in this house so I am copying this one because it looks like it will meet their requirements. I like the idea of freezing some of it too. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

This is very similar to mine - and I call it brown sugar chili. ;O) It's all about that "sweet heat"!! (& besides sour cream and cheese it's so good topped with fritos corn chips) Yum! xoxo

This sounds amazing, Mari! What size cans of Rotel? I have two sized in my pantry - very small and pretty big. How many ounces each did you use please?

I made chili this weekend, too. This sounds delicious, and it's always nice to leftovers to freeze.

Now, we have one chili recipe at our house and we all use it -- Andrew's always seems to taste the best even though he uses "my" recipe, LOL -- but THIS recipe makes me think I'm stuck in a rut. I'm making it! And I won't tell them it's different. We'll take a poll. Thanks, Mari! xoxo
