"Great flavors! Knowing my family would love the south western taste of this recipe I converted it to stove-top to use up left over chopped pork. It was a hit! As a volunteer food editor I found it easy to assemble. It paired well with cornbread, a green salad and fruit pie for dessert."

"I love the crockpot! It not only saves time, but makes everything tender and delectable! I love pork and this a great way to use it -- with a south western flair!"

"I used leftover pork loin (thinly sliced) and the recipe was still fantastic!"

"I would also like to add, though, that they have the wrong picture shown...this is a 'red' chili, not 'green'."

"EASILY doubles, and also very adaptable. Since I had to double it (used a 4lb roast), I used a total of 3 cans of beans: 1 ea black, pinto, & great northern. When it came to the cans of tomato, I used the ones that already had green chilies mixed in. Didn't have any cayenne pepper POWDER, so I used cayenne pepper SAUCE. The onions were still just a lil too hard, so I think next time I'm going to saute them a bit before adding them, so they're softer, and not so noticable by the kids! LOL As far as the cilantro, a small bunch was perfect for my 'doubled' recipe. It was so incredibly good, we didn't even use the cheese!! This recipe is DEFINITELY going into my "favorites" cookbook!"

"This is a nice change to the regular ground beef/ground pork recipe. I liked it very much. I love the taste of cilantro. I usually always add more spice to it by adding Jalapenos or even poblanos to any chili that I make. Good chili."

"This looks good but I have a question. Has anyone mede it with ground pork instead of pork cubes?"

"I added sour cream to serve, tones down the spice a notch for all those not too fond of really spicy foods, my husband is one of those!"

"Really good and easy to put together - most time-consuming was cubing the pork and browning it."
