I've been making this recipe for the family for many years. It's a great winter time warm up and makes a meal in itself.

My husband liked this more than I did; I'm not real fond of sweet chili. I think 1/2 tablespoon would have been plenty of sugar. My daughter loves chili and she only ate a few bites of this. We felt it was a bit too saucy also. My husband thought it was seasoned nicely. I made my own chili seasoning instead of using a packet. If I had to remake this I would drain the beans (not rinse them) and cut the sugar down to no more than a tablespoon. Read More
