This was amazing! So amazing that I won a chili cook off with this recipie! The one thing I changed was I added brown sugar to it when I thought sugar wasnt enough. I also added more peaches than apples. This will be the chili that I will make instead of the boring old kind from now on.

I was at first very nervous over trying this with the amount of chili powder called for but decided to go for it. This was our first encounter with a banana pepper and it was delicious in this. I even added the pinch of cayenne. I think the fruit cuts the spiciness down. Will do this chili again.

Excellent! If you're looking for something sweet and spicy, this is it! I used one small white onion in place of the red onion because that's all I had and I used two banana peppers from the garden instead of one. My husband and I loved it. I may try brown sugar in place of the white sugar only because I personally would have liked a little more sweetness, but my husband said it was perfect just the way it was. Will definitely keep this one. Thanks!
