Shawn’s Chili

Shawn's Chili
Serves 6
So I have this chili recipe that I made on my own. It’s really good and über easy to make. The best part is how versatile it is. You can add more spice if you want. Make it thicker or thinner. I need to give some credit to TR Trevenen for the brown sugar idea. He tried the original recipe and said he likes the molasses flavor in his chili. So the next time I made the chili I tried it and have been hooked since.

  1. I did two habanero chilis once. That proved too much for my untested taste buds. It was still good, but better if you like your food to be rather hot. For thicker chili, drain the beans and tomatoes.
