Simply Sweet Chili

Sweet Tennessee Chili -

Its winter here in Tennessee and the weather is cold, there is nothing like coming inside to a hot bowl of chili. This is a wonderful recipe that Darrick has come up with, its not too sweet and has a great flavor. As a child I can remember coming in after a day of sledding and my mom serving me a bowl of chili.

Here is what you will need :

2 TB ground cumin
2 TB chili powder
1/2 TB ground Cinnamon
1/4 C sugar
1 TB Garlic powder
1 1/2 C water
1/2 C white vinegar
2 Bay Leaves
3 TB Cornstarch
5 cans (14oz each) diced tomato's
2 cans (15oz each) Kidney beans
14oz of canned mushrooms
1 medium onion diced
1 green pepper diced
1 lb ground beef (browned)

  • Combine the vinegar, water and cornstarch and add with all the other ingredients except for the browned ground beef, bring to a boil and then let simmer on low heat for 2hrs, then add in the ground beef and let simmer for another hour, remember to regularly stir the pot to insure the flavor is evenly mixed and doesn't burn.
  • Top off with some sour cream, shredded cheese and a side of corn bread and enjoy !
