Crockpot Sweet Chili

This is the chili I grew up on and it’s a family favorite to this day! My mom got this recipe from a friend years ago and it’s been our go-to ever since. It’s slightly sweet and full of flavor. Besides being delicious, one of the things that I love most about this recipe is that it is so quick and easy to throw together. Pour all of the ingredients into a crockpot and you are good to go!

Serve this chili as is or with a side of cornbread. And for even more scrumptiousness, you can serve it with another one of my family’s favs, Cornbread Casserole! Click her for the recipe.
