Loaded with both beef and pork, this chili is extra meaty. I keep it mild so it's easy on sensitive stomachs and for children who can't handle hot spices.—Christine Panzarella, Buena Park, California

"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 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."
