MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 24, 2013

"This is a great twist on chili. It would not replace our regular classic chili recipe but sometimes it is nice to have something a little different. We took it camping and it seemed very appropriate for warm weather chili!"

MY REVIEW

"This recipe came out awesome! I added some cooked bacon and several serrano peppers to spicen it up. After cooking it, I threw it in a slow cooker and let it keep cooking on low for an hour or two. It was amazing. I accidentally used a 1/2 cup of brown sugar, but it was great. Next time I'll stick to a 1/4 cup. Chili cookoff tomorow, we'll see how it goes."

MY REVIEW

"I decided to make this recipe when I was looking for a way to use up some crushed pineapple that was leftover from another recipe. I didn't want to make such a big batch, however, so I made some adjustments to the recipe. I cut the 2 lbs of ground beef down to 1 lb of pork sausage. Used about 1/3 cup onion, reduced the ketchup to 1/2 cup, substituted 20 oz crushed pineapple for the pineapple chunks, used 2 Tablespoons of brown sugar and eliminated the vinegar. Left the kidney beans & pork & beans as is. Loved the sweetness the pineapple adds to this recipe - what a nice change from traditional chili! Comes together quickly. Will be making this one again."
