I planned to make my regular chili, to mix with leftover Macc & Cheese. Went to the pantry, only to see that I was out of tomato sauce & paste. But I had the whole tomatoes & Rotel. I thought, ok. In the crockpot all day, this might just work. I usually don't use Rotel in my chili, but I wasn't thinking about it when I was adding all my usual spices. Then I thought Uh-Oh, might be a tad too spicy, so I added the tablespoon of brown sugar. Gave it a very subtle sweet taste ahead of the heat.
