The Winning Chili Recipe

We had a chili cook off at work last year and my competitive side came out. I created a sweet and spicy chili with a few "secret" ingredients. I'm not very good at keeping secrets so I will share the recipe. All the measurements are approximate and you can add more or less to taste.

The Winning Chili Recipe

1 lb ground beef
2 cans tomato sauce
1/2 c water
1 can Rotel
2 Tbs chili powder
1 tsp onion
1 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp cayenne (more or less to taste)
3 oz Hershey's milk chocolate
1/2 c Dr. Pepper
1 can red kidney beans

Brown beef and drain fat. Add all ingredients except the beans. Simmer on medium low for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the beans and simmer for 10 more minutes.

My chili won the cook off and I got accused of having an unfair advantage because of my Texas heritage. Oh well, I still get bragging rights and that's what matters.
