Crock-Pot Sweet Chili
We decided to enter a chili cook-off at our local community center just for fun. While we were not expecting to win a prize we thought it would be fun just to enter a slow cooker full of yummy chili and chat with folks in our community and then go around the tables at the cook-off and sample some of the different kinds of chili.
It was totally a fun time for everyone in my family!
When it came to deciding what kid of chili we wanted to bring there was some heavy discussion among my kids and husband on if we wanted to make a super spicy chili…the kind that knocks your socks off and makes you sweat. Or if we should do a mild chili that was friendly for everyone in attendance at the cook-off…even small children.
We decided on the later and everyone was happy. I then remembered this easy chili recipe that my mom makes all the time for a sweet chili. I remember it being hearty with plenty of ground beef, just the right amount of beans, not spicy…at all and there was just a little bit of sweetness to it.
I just knew it was the recipe for our family to bring!
So I got to cooking up some hamburger and threw everything in the slow cooker for a couple of hours and brought it to the chili cook-off.
And it was a huge hit with the crowd. Everyone came up for a sample and we got so many comments on the great flavor and the respite from the mouth burning, tongue tingling hot and spicy chili everyone else at the event was serving. It was really nice to be able to hand out little sample cups to children of all ages so they could enjoy the cook-off too.
Of course if you want to add some spice and heat to this sweet chili recipe you can. Just add some cayenne pepper, red chili flakes, diced jalapeño pepper or whatever you like to make it as spicy as you can handle!
