This was a little too sweet for my tastes. I think next time I'll decrease the amount of sugar and up the chili powder. I liked the mushrooms in it and the peppers and V8 added some nice flavor.

Oh I just loved it! I had Venison that I ground up and added to this along with some ground pork. Sweet and spicy!! I just love Crock pot meals!

Made this last night for 6 people.
This went over well and I actually used 2 pkgs of Yves Ground Round to make it Vegetarian and no one noticed. This is a very sweet recipe, I used 4 tbsp of brown sugar but it could have used less. Plus I only used 2 jalapeno peppers, non spicy V8 and no Cumin and a little over half of the chili powder and it still had a zing to it. So if you do not like spice, go with less of everything.
Plus, there just seemed to be not enough beans for such a large amount (this makes a very big batch of chili), so I added another 2 cans of beans but then there was too much for the slow cooker, so I transferred it all into a large pot and cooked it on the stove top for a couple of hours.
It came out thick and tasty, I will definitely make this again.
