Yesterday, we had a ward chili cook off. Seth wanted to do something a little different, so yesterday morning we found a recipe for Sweet Italian Chili, I headed to the store for some fresh ingredients and that night we took Honorable Mention. Here's the recipe:

1 1/2 lbs 95% lean ground beef
3/4 cup chopped bell peppers
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
3/4 cup chopped onions
3/4 cup thinly sliced celery
2 (16 ounce) cans kidney beans , drained
1 (16 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
1 (12 ounce) can tomato paste
2 cups water
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons dried sweet basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder (Or the real stuff)
1 dash ground cloves
1 dash baking soda
1. Brown ground beef in a dutch oven.
2. Drain and return to pan.
3. Add bell pepper, parsley, onion and celery.
4. Saute until onion is clear, approximately 5 minutes.
5. Add remaining ingredients and simmer 1-1/2 to 2 hours.

That looks really good. I'll have to figure out how to do it in a crockpot.
