April's Chili

A few years ago a friend of mine gave me her award winning chili recie  I can't guarantee that I always win the prize with this but I really like it.  Sometimes I alter the ingredients a little.  Last time I made it I added 1/4 Cup of BBQ sauce so that I could have a little bit of a smokey flavor but I usually don't.

2 pounds ground beef
1 1/2 C chopped onion
5 minced garlic cloves
1 Chopped  green pepper
1 C choppeed celery

Saute, then drain off grease.

Then add the following 14 oz cans:
1 can black beans
2 cans ranch style beans
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can rotel
2 cans tomato sauce
1 can low sodium chicken broth or beef broth

Then Add:
1 t worstershire sauce
2 T chili powder
1 T oregano
1 t corriander seeds
1 t basil
2 t salt
pepper to taste
1/2-3/4 C Brown Sugar
1 T vinegar
1/4 C catsup
Dash of tabasco

Bring to a low boil then simmer for a couple of hours.
