Keen5 posted this in a request thread for school chili. I asked her to post it to the the site so I could save it to my cookbook because I think it sounds delicious and she was kind enough to let me post it as my first recipe on Recipezaar! Thanks, Keen5!!

I should have gotten a clue from the title! We thought it too sweet, and I did doctor it up a touch with more chili powder and a dash of cumin. I baked it in the oven in my dutch oven, uncovered, for four hours as it was quite thin, and we like chili chunky and thick. Still, it would be a great chili for children, they'd gobble it up, I'm sure! Thanks for posting! Made for Fall PAC 2012
