Wow, this turned out great! I cooked this in a crockpot on low overnight for a "soup" potluck at my work today. I made a couple of changes to it: I left out the beef broth completely (in the slow cooker it is not needed), used one large white onion, a little more sirloin, 3 teaspoons minced garlic, 2 Serrano chilies (one with seeds), half kidney - half pinto beans, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and everything else the same. (So not too different). I also used Guinness beer. While the beef, onions & garlic were cooking I threw everything else into the crockpot to mix it up and then dumped in the meat. It was the favorite "soup" of the day! Next time I'll use three or four chilies to add a bit more heat and make sure sour cream is handy for people who need to tame it. With two (and seeds) it had a slight after-burn but not enough for me. :) I had a bottle of habanero Tabasco sauce handy for anyone like me.
