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.

  2. Next, add the beans, mushrooms, brown sugar and chili powder to taste. Mix together well, reduce heat to low and let simmer for 20 minutes to 1 hour or more, depending on how much time you have and how thick you like your chili.

This was not the best chili I ever had but my boyfriend loved it! I just couldn't get over the fact that there was no "red" in it so I ended up adding 1 can tomato sauce. Also, I only used 1lb of hamburger AND added a can of northern beans. I'll make this again and send w/ my boyfriend in a crock pot for those fall weekends when he heads north to his cabin.

This was an absolutely delicious chili recipe. After I got over the fact that it was not a red chili recipe and tasted the finished product, it was very very good. Thanks for the recipe!

Yes to the northern beans...Plus I put a lot more peppers and onions in than the recipe called for. Plus some cilantro, jalopenos slices, red pepper and a couple splashes of Dave's Insanity Sauce-just right!
