Sweet and Spicy Slow Cooker Chili Recipe

Easy Sweet and Spicy Slow Cooker Chili is AWARD WINNING.  The BEST chili recipe around, my secret ingredient creates a sweet-tart background to this slightly spicy recipe.
——————————–FULL RECIPE BELOW——————————-
2 pounds ground beef (I used 80-20)
1 large onion diced
1 red bell pepper diced
1 green bell pepper diced
5 garlic cloves minced
2 large jalapeno peppers minced (remove the seeds and veins for less heat…leave them for more heat)
1/4 cup chili powder
3 tablespoons ground cumin
3 tablespoons ground cayenne pepper
2 tablespoon crushed red pepper
6 ounce jar of chopped sweet peppers and juice
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 – 28 ounce can tomato sauce
1 – 28 ounce can crushed fire roasted tomatoes I use Muir Glen Organic
salt and pepper to taste

In a large frying pan, brown the ground beef until no longer pink and transfer to the slow cooker using a slotted spoon.
Drain off all but two tablespoons of fat and add the onions to the pan.
Cook the onions over med-high heat until they begin to soften. Add the peppers to the onions and sauté until softened.
Add the garlic and jalapeno peppers, cooking for one minute longer.
Transfer the mixture to the slow cooker with the beef.
Add the chili powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, crushed red pepper, sweet peppers and juice to the beef mixture and stir to combine.
Add the brown sugar, tomato sauce and crushed tomatoes stirring thoroughly to be sure all the ingredients are incorporated.
Season with salt and pepper to taste and cook in the slow cooker on high for 3-4 hours or low for 5-6 hours.
Serve with your favorite chili toppings, we love greek yogurt, sour cream, shredded cheddar, green onions, and pickled jalapenos…just to name a few.
Note: Chili can be stored in an airtight container refrigerated for up to 3 days or in the freezer for 2 months.
