Sweet Chili

Susan Parent


My family loves chili - especially on a cool, Fall day. But we're not really keen on foods that are too hot and spicy. This chili is our favorite alternative - still full of flavor, and you can't mistake it for anything other than chili, but it's nice and mild.

In the ingredients I specify using vidalia onions and elephant garlic as I find both of them to be a bit sweeter than their normal counterparts.

I also like to top it with a shredded mexican cheese blend.

Serving over rice will increase the number of servings but I think it makes it harder to taste the sweetness & tanginess of the chili.
