Sweet Chili

I have NEVER found a person who didn't like this meal!

It is a fall & winter favorite of my children, my students, and potluck dinners.

Serve with cornbread.



This was a regular dish at our house growing up, but my mother made it with a can each of butter beans [yuck! to me], pork n beans, and kidney beans. 


I changed it up to my liking, and made some alterations that enable me to throw it together in 15 minutes, 5 minutes with pre-cooked meat for the children. 


It IS better if cooked in the traditional manner and in a crock pot over night to let the flavors meld. I make it this way for fall get-togethers.
