This recipe came from Mark, and he likes things spicy. If he says the heat sneaks up on you, rest assured it will!

He makes this when they run sled dog races in Michigan with his Tamaskan dog and the team; he says he added to his original idea of Cincinnati Chili and that putting it on top of spaghetti or rice is fine, as well as adjusting the ingredients to your personal preference (example, we used Busch's vegetarian beans for my daughter)

How to Make Stealth Chili, Mark


  1. In a large frying pan, brown the ground beef until
    no longer pink and transfer to the slow cooker
    using a slotted spoon
    Drain most of the fat, add the onions to the pan
    until they begin to soften
    Add the peppers and garlic, cook for another 1-2
    Transfer all to the slow cooker
    Add the spices, sweet peppers and juice, finally
    the beans and the tomatoes and sauce
    Stir thoroughly, season with salt to taste
    Cook on low for 5-6 hours or on high for 3-4
    Garnish with sour cream, or shredded cheese,
    or scallions
  2. Note: I can't handle spicy very well, and definitely needed both cheese and sour cream, along with my typical cornbread crumbled on top!
  3. This was easy to make vegetarian for my daughter in a small crockpot with the changes I put above. However, the texture was a little strange/off, so we added rice to keep it from being sticky.
