I have been using this recipe for years but I do it in my crock pot. I have changed it some , first I like my chili hot, I have added ghost peppers in the past but most can't handle that so I use 4 jalapeno peppers chopped up and 2 heaping tablespoons of Asian garlic chili paste, I don't use the salsa, and use 3 cans of the beans,and I guess at most of the other ingredients, I don't use water, instead beef broth, I add the celery and other vegetables but use red bell pepper instead of green, and I also put chocolate in mine ,about 1/4 cup nestle toll house morsels instead of sugarI just won a chili contest at work that had 2 pds of ground round and a pound of hot Italian sausage in it. I just got done getting a batch in my crockpot with venison which I've done before, 2 pda ground and a pound or so of cut up steak, this I have done beforeThis is beter than any chili I have tried,LOL, using baked beans and tomato juice or v-8 ? Ya I could see why that might be a little sweet

This was super easy and pretty good, but a little too sweet for my liking. Was I supposed to drain the baked beans??? I didn't add all the tomato & V8 juice because I didn't want it to be too watery.

My husband really enjoyed this meal. It was simple to make. I plan on making this for a church pot luck.

Suggestions I have would be use 2 cans of baked beans, that might cut back on the sweetness. Use the baked beans seasoned with onion, and add 1 bell pepper.

I tried this chili as a change of pace from my usual chili recipe... It was delicious! It was very quick & easy and made enough to share with a friend. My family loves baked beans so this chili was a hit!
