The Best Sweet Chili you ever had!

If you like a meaty chili then this will be the best sweet chili you ever had!

For years I have tried to find the best and perfect chili recipe with no luck. Everyone needs a great homemade chili recipe. Then a friend of mine made me her famous award winning chili and stars alligned. My family LOVED it and I had to ask her for the recipe.

She was kind enough to share with me her secret to making the best chili you ever had every-time….

…no tomato sauce and lots of tomato paste.

Mind blown! Now that I knew the secret it was time to create my own incredible sweet chili recipe using this new food knowledge and viola this recipe was born.

If you enjoy a meaty hearty chili you will fall in love with this recipe!

This recipe is SOOOO GOOD, Everyone asks for the recipe good! You cant wait for leftovers good!

I also added a little cinnamon into it which gives a great addition of depth in flavor to the dish! You can omit but I highly recommend giving it a try with the cinnamon. It adds a little extra something something you never knew was missing.
