My husband and I liked this chili, but I'm still looking for a recipe we like better. It was good, but I prefer a chili to have more of a tomato base. If I try this recipe again, I will add a can or two of tomato paste. I used Bush's hot 'n spicy chili beans instead of plain kidney beans, and for the canned tomatoes I used chopped tomatoes with jalapenos. I used Progresso's black bean soup, ready-to-serve, not condensed. I only added half the baked beans, as other reviews said it tasted too much like baked beans, and it came out good. I used lots of garlic powder, rather than fresh, and added extra chili powder, as we like our chili very spicy. I served it with with shredded cheddar and sour cream on top. Very filling, high in fiber, and low in fat. It was very fast and easy to throw together, and makes a LOT of chili. I did have it in my crock pot for about 4 hours on high, but my crock pot is old, so maybe 2 hours is enough in a newer pot.
