Reviews for Heartwarming Beef & Pork Chili
"Very good, great for someone who loves a really meaty chili. The addition of the ground pork gives it a little different flavor that we enjoyed.For those who like it spicier, hot sausage would be a good substitute for the ground pork."
"I've been cooking this recipe for years and the men of the house absolutely LOVE it!! Me too :) Thanks so much Mrs. P!"
"My family sorta liked it."
"I made this in my Crock Pot! I didn't even brown the meat first. I just put it all in together and cooked it on high for about 4 hours. It was a little soupy so I added rice and cheese. It was awesome!"
"We love this chili! I have even substituted the pinto beans with a can of baked beans, which made it even sweeter, which we loved! Often, I use turkey sausage for the pork or more ground beef. It is always great."
