"I had whole jalepenos, so I finely chopped a whole one and threw that in there, and left out the cayenne pepper and the chili powder. Delicious! Husband LOVED it. Definitely will make again. It's spicy, but not so spicy that I can't get through a whole serving of it."

"I won a chili cook off with this recipe for pork chili. I call it my pulled pork chili , I left out a couple of items so I could call it my recipe. Instead of chunks I shredded the pork. Now I am going to put the recipe in our church ' s recipe book the ladies are making . Thanks so much for great recipes ."

"I'm not really a fan of pork in chili; however, I decided to give this a try. I was pleasantly surprised. The combination of pork with the spices and chili beans made a nice, zesty combination. One thing I did was to make my chunks a little smaller. I also add an additional can of spicy chili beans. Excellent."
