Ok, somebody who reads our blogs has it.  And I want it.  You won't share it with members of your family, but you should share it with me. Please.

I'm looking for the absolute best homemade chili recipe. The simpler the better. I like it a little hot, a little sweet, but still a basic chili with beans.

My "go to" recipe is beef, chili powder, yellow onion (cooked with the beef), a couple cans of tomato chunks, some cumin, garlic powder, and light red kidney beans.

Then put it in the crockpot for 6-7 hours. But I want something more succulent. Keep in mind, once you give me the secret recipe, I'll take TOTAL credit for it. But, I need some help first!
