(Sweet) Chili

Who doesn’t like chili? Perhaps vegetarians, but that doesn’t matter. Cook this. It takes less than an hour to throw it all in a pot. The hardest part is not eating it when it starts smelling delicious.


1 package of ground beef
6 chipotle (or other spicy) sausage
1 bulb of garlic
1 medium sized white onion
2 tablespoons (at least) of chili powder for a mild sensation
1 can of red kidney beans
2 cans of beans in molasses
2 680mL cans of tomato sauce
4 heaping tablespoons of brown sugar (optional)


  1. Eat some breakfast or lunch. Whichever is closer.
  2. Heat pot to medium heat. Cook a package of ground beef. I used extra lean.
  3. Cut up 6 spicy sausages. Add when beef is cooked.
  4. From one bulb of garlic, remove skins of all cloves. Leave whole. Add when all inedible bits are removed.
  5. Peel and slice one medium sized white onion. Add to the pot. And stir while you’ve been adding stuff.
  6. Add 2 tablespoons (the big one) of hot chili powder.
  7. Cover and reduce the heat to low (2 on a scale of 10). Let sit a few minutes.
  8. While the pot is sitting, strain and rinse 1 can of red kidney beans. Add.
  9. Add 2 cans of beans with molasses.
  10. Add 2 cans of tomato sauce.
  11. Let sit a few minutes and then taste it. Add more chili powder as required.
  12. If it fits, you can add more of your favorite ingredient now.
  13. Optional: Add 4 heaping tablespoons of brown sugar.
  14. Let it cook at low heat until you’re hungry again.

I’m hungry again writing down these instructions.
