Spicy crock pot chili

February 23, 2015

It’s been so cold this winter (I’m in Canada, Ontario) our last few weeks we’ve had temperatures that have been feeling like -35! As soon as you go outside your face instantly freezes. ๐Ÿ™ So to try and warm up a little I made a spicy chili. This is not your ordinary chili, I don’t like kidney beans and replaced them with baked beans. There is just enough spice to leave a lasting impression…and maybe a trip back for seconds. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    what kind of baked beans did you use? I know you said Heinz baked beans but did they have a sauce on them? Thanks!

    Hi, This recipe sounds great. Could you use different beans? Can you use plain pinto beans?

      Hi, sure you can .. I am not sure on the points though so you’d have to see if they are similar to baked beans, probably would be my guess

    Wow! This chili was fantastic! What a great mix of flavors. It is nice and chunky and so versatile. You could put it in tacos, nachos, over a salad, etc. I am going to be making this one often. Thank you!

    Added a cup of veggie broth to make it more soupy. Served with popables. Yum.
