Reviews for Bold Bean and Pork Chili
"I used only 1/4 of a cup of chili powder the flavor was just ok but extremely gritty I have been using TOH recipes for several years this is only the 2 recipe we didn't iike"
"This recipe is incredibly delicious!!! I did cut back on the chili powder and I used half chili beans and half black beans! Wow. This is a keeper!"
"Found this recipe and used it for our neighborhood Chili Cook-Off on halloween. It WON! So good."
"Loved this chili, nice and hot. You may want to tone it down a bit depending on who's going to eat. My mother could barely finish half a bowl."
"HOT! We loved it... kids ate spaghetti, but we loved it. Good flavor. I didn't know what to do with the pork as far as cutting it..I cubed it when I sauted it. Hubby wished we had corn bread rather then Best Cheese Bread(TOH recipe)"
