A delicious and hearty chili con carne that is also easy to make. The small addition of brown sugar and touch of vinegar in combination with the chili powder gives the soup an enticing flavor trio. Add more or less to suit your individual tastes. Offer cornbread like my Mom did and you have a tasty, tempting meal.

Very good recipe, but a little too sweet for our taste. Next time, I would only use 1/2 cup of brown sugar, maybe less. *I only used 1 can of Dark Red Kidney Beans, but I would do that with any Chilli Con Carne recipe because we like more meat, less beans. When it was just about ready to eat, I tasted it and decided to add 2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper. Perfect! I served it with Mexican Blend Cheese and diced onions on top, and warm corn bread, honey and butter. It was delicious! Read More
