Sweet Onion, Apple and Bratwurst Chili

I found this recipe in the local newspaper and it is to die for. It's one of my husband's most requested dishes. The woman who came up with it, Lorie Roach, won first place in a contest by making it. We completely understand why.

    This chili is outstanding! It won 1st place in an extended family chili contest yesterday, against 4 other excellent chilies. I made a double batch and there were no leftovers. The only thing I did different was to grill the brats before cutting them up, adding them to the pot at the same time as the chickpeas.

    It wasn't so much a chili but it was outstanding. I love pepper but found the extra teaspoon a bit much. I used pepper bacon by Tyson. That alone would have been plenty. We are definitely making this again.

    I loved this combo of ingredients. It was easy to follow and quick for a weeknight. I would really like to spice it up a bit. The garbanzos are rather bland and I thought they needed some more pep.
