Well, actually it's not my chili. It's real name is Stratford's Sweet Chili from a Crockpot Cookbook. But it's the only chili recipe that I make! When I was little I HATED chili. Really, really hated it. The smell of it cooking would make me gag. That was one of the meals that I was allowed to eat something else for dinner if my parents were eating chili. I am still not the biggest fan of most chili but I really like this one. You must make garlic bread to eat with this - this is a must!!! I promise it won't be as good without it!
1 can (19 oz) Chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 can (19 oz) Red kidney beans, drained & rinsed
1 can (28 oz) Chopped tomatoes with herbs and spices
1 can (10 oz) Corn kernels, drained
2 Carrots, peeled & diced
2 Large garlic cloves, minced
1 Red onion, finely chopped
