Mom's Sweet Chili Recipe
2 lbs ground beef
2 large green peppers, chopped
1 large onion, diced
3 stalks of celery, chopped
3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 Tbsp chili powder
2 jars chili sauce (make sure you don't grab cocktail sauce, they are right next to each other)
3 cans diced tomatoes
4 Tbsp fresh parsley
3 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
3 cans red kidney beans (or a variation of your choice)
1 box white rice (cook according to package directions and set aside)
shredded cheddar cheese
In a large dutch oven, brown the meat really well. (till little brown crusts form) Drain the fat from the pot.
While the meat is browning, saute the green peppers, onion, garlic, and celery. Cook until tender.
Add the veggies to the meat along with the next five ingredients. (do not add the beans yet)
Bring to a boil and then simmer on low for about two hours.
About a half hour before you are ready to serve, add the beans and heat through.
Serve over the rice and top with the cheddar cheese. Then just dig in and enjoy! Happy Chili Cooking! :)
