Sweet Chili

Good homemade recipe that has been passed to me from many generations.



  1. Brown and drain beef.
  2. Add onion, green pepper, garlic and chili powder. Stir this really good and let sauté for a few minutes.
  3. Then add in tomato paste, tomato sauce and diced tomatoes. Let simmer for about 10 minutes.
  4. Add red beans and water. Bring to a good simmer and then add the brown sugar (to your taste).
  5. Simmer on low for about 1 hour.
  6. Serve hot with a little grated sharp cheddar and lite sour cream.
