1 cup of brown sugar! Yikes. I knew that would be way way way way too sweet for me. Everything else looked so good, so I made this anyway, but instead of that sugar used about 1/8 cup of honey. Only had 1 lb of ground beef, and added 6 pieces of cooked, chopped turkey bacon. My dried mustard was dead, so I threw it in the garbage and used a few tablespoons of grainy dijon. Also added a goodly handful of hot pepper flakes. Used a can of black beans instead of the wax, but I think almost any bean mix would work with this. The key, I think, is in the chili beans and the soup as a base plus the mustard and a tinge of sweetness and the smokey bacon that I added. Works so well!!! Made it in the slow cooker according to the instructions(6 hours on low). My tweaked recipe results I'd give a 5 star. I love love love love this. Had a snow storm this morning and this was a perfect dinner for this kind of a day.
