"This is a hand-me-down from my Grandma. I like it because it doesn't have kidney beans and it has a bit of a sweet taste. It's a brown chili not a red one - no tomatoes."

My fiancee and I enjoy this recipe. Tweaks we've made: more than double the beans (around 40 oz,) and substitute half the ground beef for sausage. We've also tried it with and without the onio...

We liked this chili a lot, and really liked that it used a ton of veggies so it makes for a good clean-out-the-fridge dish. I did only use one pound of ground beef, and added one can of black be...
