Sweet Chili

Nothing like steaming chili and a baked potato to get you through the winter. Only problem: I've never liked spicy chili and I swear every recipe I find is more and more spicy. Soooo, here she is: I've finally perfected my sweet chili recipe. Mmmm mmm! And it's fantastically simple too.

Sweet Chili
  • 1/2 lb cooked ground turkey (or beef if you'd rather)
  • 1 can kidney beans, rinsed
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can corn
  • 1/2 cup green pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Sprinkle of cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1-2 cans beef broth

  • Put everything in a slow cooker. Add the broth last, using more or less, depending on how thick or thin you like your chili. Simmer on low for 4 - 5 hours.
  • Or, if it's getting to be dinner time you can totally whip this up! Saute the onions and green pepper in a big pot with a tablespoon olive oil, on medium heat until soft.  Add everything else to the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes.

Haha, thanks Stacy! Landon's been super sick for the past few days, meaning we have been lounging, watching Cars 1 and 2 over and over again. That means I get snuggles and time to work on the blog!
