Ingredients:1 box (dark) brown sugar, divided
unknown qty Teriyaki sauce - see instructions
(sub: Soy sauce = higher salt)
2 + lbs chili meat (subs: ok)
6-8 rashers bacon (sub: ground sausage)
1 chopped white onion
1 chopped yellow onion
1* chopped red onion*
1 chopped green bell pepper
1 chopped red bell pepper
1* chopped yellow bell pepper* (if available)
1* 30-oz can tomato sauce*

1* 30-oz can chili beans* (drained)
2-4 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves pressed garlic
4 tsp chili powder (more to taste)
1 tsp cayenne pepper (more if courageous)
1-2 tsp celery seed
1-2 tsp chopped chives
1-2 tsp salt
1 tsp hot dry mustard
1 bay leaf
(*Adjust quantities as necessary based on size of the crock pot(s))
Preparation:Make a paste of 1/2 box of brown sugar and just enough teriyaki so it's
thick, not runny. Brown the chili meat/sausage (whatever you're using)
with the paste. Drain browned meat. Cook and chop bacon, if used.

Layer the ingredients in a slow cooker. Take the other 1/2 box of brown
sugar and make another paste w/teriyaki and pour over the assembled
Mix if you can -- easier to mix later after it's been cooking.

Cook on high for ~3 hours, or low for ~5 hours. Stir when you feel like

Good with (or over) cornbread.
Notes:[Note: you may wish to brown & chop the night before, assemble on feast day.]
