Secret Ingredient Chili

Everyone is a big fan of my chili, but nobody can guess the "secret ingredient." My unusual chili ingredient is Spicy Bloody Mary Mix instead of water. It adds so much flavor in one easy step. I also like to use ancho chile powder. It's called chile ancho molido in Spanish. I finally found it in a Hispanic food market.

Combine all ingredients in a large slow cooker or in a large chili pot. Cook on low for 8 hours in the slow cooker, or simmer over a low heat for one hour (stirring occasionally) on a stove top.

  • Sorry, Bloody Mary Mix, doesn't sound diff to me. It In the mix, of course, that make it different. I'll stay with plain ole tomatoes or juice! pickup2
