I found this recipe for chili stew in a crock pot cookbook years ago. I have made quite a few adjustments to the original recipe.

I love this recipe because it uses stew meat in place of the typical ground beef, making it a hearty and substantial meal.

My family really loves this chili and I hope yours does too!

This lovely chili has a subtle sweetness that is a welcome departure from traditional hot & spicy versions. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
