Chili - Sharon Style

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by Chef Sharon R

I keep this chili in the refrig nearly all winter long. We actually eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Always a hit with friends and family. I tweeked this chili and used ideas from several different chili recipes to come up with one my family surrendared to as "their all around favorite"

Wow! We have eaten a lot of chilis & we now have two favorites, one for turkey & this one for beef. Amazing flavor in this combination! It's got a little heat but that can all be controlled to suit individual tastes without sacrificing the overall enjoyment. The recipe looks like a lot of ingredients but it was actually very little work. Most of my time was spent draining cans. ;) We loved the wide variety of beans & the addition of corn in this recipe, but the best part had to be the sweet & sassy chipotle aroma that filled the house during the 3 hours I had it simmering on the stove. After the first bite, DS (15 yrs) claimed that it was his "all-time favorite" chili recipe. I made 1/2 the recipe for 3 of us & a toddler & that gave us plenty for dinner & another dinner and a lunch vacuum packed & frozen for later. This would be a perfect OAMC recipe. Next time I'll make a full recipe (using two dutch ovens) and we'll have awesome chili on hand for months! Thanks for sharing your recipe, Sharon! We'll be making it again & again! Made & enjoyed for Pick A Chef, Spring 2009.
