Sweet Chili

This is the yummiest chili that we first tasted at D'Ann and Ron's house in Provo. It's been a long time recipe of the Rogers family. Here's a link to the original recipe. I'll post my version-

2lbs Jimmy Dean Maple sausage (2 rolls)
2lbs hamburger (I don't usually add the hamburger, but spence likes it)
2 -15oz cans pinto beans (drained)
2 -15oz cans chili beans (only drain if you want to lessen the chili flavor)
2 cups V8 juice (plus more depending on the consistency you like your chili)
1/2 cup water
4 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 cup brown sugar (can mix light and dark brown sugar for an extra sweetness)
2 - 3 Tbsp Worcesterchire sauce
1 Tbsp kosher salt
1-1 1/2 Tbsp dry mustard

Brown sausage. Add all other ingredients and simmer for 30 - 45 minutes. Top with grated cheese, sour cream, avocado and any other toppings! I almost always cut this recipe in half just because it makes a ton. But, as Amanda found out, it's perfect to freeze!


Amanda's Version:
2lbs Jimmy Dean sausage (2 rolls- 1 maple, 1 regular)
1 1/2 lbs hamburger
2 -15oz cans pinto beans (drained)
2 -15oz cans chili beans (only drain if you want to lessen the chili flavor)
2 - 15 oz cans black beans (drained) (i like the color variation)
46 ounces V8 juice
4 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 - 3 Tbsp Worcesterchire sauce
1 Tbsp kosher salt
1-1 1/2 Tbsp dry mustard
ground pepper
