Crockpot Sweet Chili

Dear Fliss,
This is one of my favorite meals for busy or church days.  I like it best served over rice or a baked potato, but the rest of the family enjoys it plain.  I usually serve it with cornbread muffins and a salad.

Crockpot Sweet Chili
Serves 6-8
at least 1# leftover cooked meat (roast, pulled pork, meatloaf, taco meat, meatballs, hamburgers, or any combo thereof), broken or pulled into small pieces.
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1 envelope Lipton Beefy Onion Soup mix
1 (28 oz) can Pastene ground tomatoes
2 (28 oz cans) baked beans, or 1-1/2 quarts homemade baked beans
1 Tbsp vinegar
3 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp ancho chile powder, optional
1-2 tsp chipotle chile powder, optional

Pop it all in the crockpot until hot and bubbly, about 4 hours on low.  Move to the warm setting until ready to eat.  Serve with shredded cheese, sour cream, and saltines or oyster crackers.

Love ya, Hot Stuff!
