Joe's Famous Chili (Recipe)

Ok, even though my mom made the chili originally (at least in our eyes) my brother has tweaked the recipe a bit and I prefer his. Now, mind you this is a very basic recipe. We are very picky eaters (don't like onions, peppers, mushrooms and the like. If you like them, by all means add them.)

2 lbs ground beef
2 lbs Bushs Mild Chili Beans (or comperable)
2 packets of Chili Seasoning
2 Tablespoons Ketchup
Small amount of Light Brown Sugar
8 oz can of Tomato Sauce
Honey (optional)

Brown ground beef and drain. Add chili beans and tomato sauce. Stirring frequently, cook on lo/med heat for about 30 mins. Adding ketchup, Brown Sugar and Chili Seasoning, mix and continue to heat on "simmer" for an hour. If you want additional sweetness, add a couple tablespoons honey. For spicier chili, use only enough Brown Sugar to sprinkle over top of chili. For sweeter chili, use about 1-1/2 cups.

Are you sure about 1 and 1/2 cups of brown sugar for sweet chili? That's the same amount of sugar found in most chocolate chip cookie recipes. Just wanna make sure your post is accurate w/ your recipe. I like my chili spicy. This is a very unique recipe for sure!

Yup! I know it sounds like a lot, but if you like it sweet, that's how much to use. What I's suggest is to add to your taste. Put a little in, stir and let it cook in for like 15 mins and then taste it. My brother only uses like 2 tablespoons, but for me and Doug we use more. Could also be that different seasoning may require more or less!
