    Ridgely's Note:

    This is a real tasty sweet and spicy beanless chili that I tried from Bon Appetit magazine. The recipe was found in the RSVP section as a request from a restaurant in Rochester New York called Dinosaur Bar-B-Que. We loved it and beans could be added easily if you are a bean fan.

      This is one of my go to recipes. It gets rave reviews every time I make it. I made a few small changes to make it my own, but I think it would be just as delicious as is. <br/><br/>I leave out the ground beef and use 1 lb beef kielbasa, sliced into about 1/4" thick semi circles. I change out crushed tomatoes for diced. I cut the brown sugar in half. And I add 2C cooked kidney beans at the end (about a can). Thanks so much for sharing! <br/><br/>I wanted to share the love, so I posted a link to this on my fledgling blog at

      Excellant!! I did add one large can of red kidney beans, we do like beans in our chili, I am sure though that is would be equally good without. The seasonings result in wonderful flavour, but not quite the heat that we like, so I added a sprinkle of red pepper flakes. I only had one tin of crushed tomatoes so I used a tin or whole tomatoes for the second one, also just cut up the sausage and left them in chunks. Next time I may try hot Italian sausage. loved the touch of lime juice, gave it a nice twang. I made the whole recipe and will freeze some for later. Thanks for posting , I will make it again.

      I made this recipe when I saw it in Bon Appetit and it's become a favorite. I usually simmer for about 45 minutes to an hour, but otherwise make the recipe as is.
