Super Bowl Award Winning Chili Beans Recipe @pinch

A fantastic chili that's packed with flavor, meat, and beans. Hearty and comforting, it's perfect for a cool crisp day of watching football. This recipe does take a little babysitting while it simmers on the stove. But, Joyce also gives an option to throw it in the slow cooker for it to cook down and allow the flavors to mingle. Serve the piping hot chili with a piece of buttery, sweet cornbread and the flavor contrasts are fantastic. My personal recipe for spicy chili beans won a "Chili Cook-Off" at a Super Bowl party. There were 10 Crock Pots full of chili in the cook-off. Mine took first place! Most people think that these chili beans have just the right amount of kick! The flavor of these beans is really good, even if you choose to omit or reduce the amount of cayenne pepper if you prefer milder chili beans. When making a larger pot of chili beans, use the larger quantities of ingredients, less quantity, the lesser side of ingredients.
