This chili is by far the best I have ever had! I am not being biased either, I really love chili and have had all different kinds. It has also won in two chili cook-offs. It's unique in the fact that it had 3 meats, 3 veggies and 3 beans. Also, the beef in au jus is the kicker! So delicious!

This chili was a hit in the Test Kitchen. The mix of beans, meat and veggies was great. The sweet peppers were a great addition. I can see why it's award winning. It's a great shortcut chili recipe for a cool night. Serve with cornbread and the family will smile.

Note: We used Hormel Roast Beef Au jus (15 oz.). Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
