Holy Trinity Chili
We have this chili all the time, but with some changes. I've never had chili without beans personally, and bacon makes everything better. I use dried beans (about 1 1/2 cups of dried beans equals the right amount when soaked, and I'll mix up pinto, kidney, white, black, etc.) and omit the sugar completely. I add about a tablespoon of cocoa powder.
We make two batches at a time, one in each crockpot (though we brown the meat and onions/garlic on the stove top), and one will have less chili peppers than the other, in order to accomodate varying tastes. We freeze any extra and it freezes and reheats very well.
