I grew up loving chili. But not all chili, just my mom's sweet chili. As far as I'm concerned there is nothing better. My husband is known for his spicy chili's, but for me, I love the sweet taste with the vinegar bite that reminds me of mom. This is the kind of chili you can serve anyone. Kids love it because of the lack of heat and grownups love the distinct taste. Mom's chili gets its vinegar bite from the chili sauce, if you're not a big fan of that taste, scale back the chili sauce and add some ketchup. (I, however, love that bite!) :)
We also have another tradition that goes along with this chili....we serve it over white rice. Yep, rice. It wasn't until I met my husband that I found out most people don't eat their chili that way! For me, it's the ONLY way to eat chili! :) Topped with some shredded cheddar cheese and I'm a very happy girl.
