When it’s cold outside Sweet Chili is the perfect dinner choice. This sweet chili recipe is the perfect combination of sweet with a little kick- it’s the ultimate cold weather comfort food.
As soon as the weather dips to cooler temps, this is the first dinner my kids start asking for!
This easy recipe is one your whole family will love. It is one of my quickest and easiest winter evening meals, and it’s easy to keep all the ingredients on hand all winter long. I’ll make a big batch when I’ve forgotten to plan dinner ahead, or even when I end up with last minute dinner company.
Everyone always loves it and asks for the recipe before they head home!
This recipe is the perfect way to introduce children to chili with its slightly sweet flavor. The departure from traditional chili with the addition of adding a little brown sugar in the chili while cooking gives this chili a flavor of its own.
While the recipe calls for just enough spice for a little kick, feel free to add enough red pepper to suit your taste.
My favorite way to serve this sweet chili is with a heaping basket of corn bread muffins. My kids love to crumble the muffins right into their bowls of chili.
Like the majority of my favorite recipes, this one is quick and easy. Plus it freezes well, so cook a huge pot and enjoy it all winter long!
Game day, snow day, or just a night when you need an easy recipe- this is the recipe for you!
