Quick Pork Chili

A dear neighbor gave me a pot of this delicious chili, and I asked for the recipe. The pork sausage is a nice change from the ground beef many chili recipes call for. —Janice Westmoreland, Brooksville, Florida

      This was a very quick and easy recipe. I used Skyline Cincinnati Chili Mix package and Bush's Chili Beans. It had a great flavor and not too hot. I served it with sour cream, shredded cheese, and tortilla chips. It made a great lunch for my husband and I. I will be doing this recipe again.

      This dish was very quick and easy to make, and very satisfying. I thought it was a little too watery, so next time I will just add water as needed for desired consistency. I forgot to add sugar but is was fine without it. Next time we’ll try it with beef.

      when we tried this we found it to be a good flavor. mi had never thought to use pork rather then beef in chili.

      Easy, quick, and a crowd pleaser.We had a very cold weekend here in the South and I decided to give this a try and everyone loved it...added some cornbread, and 'fixins' for folks to add in and we were ready for an evening by the wood burning stove and to break out the DVDs!

      Solid recipe for a pretty quick dinner. Sometimes on a cold night, you just want comfort food fast, and this one definitely doesn't disappoint!

      I absolutely loved this! I made for a chili cook-off 9/21/12. Even though it didn't win, it was loved by many. I'm making again for the Packer Game this Sunday. This time, I will be using spicy chili beans, versus plain chili beans. Thank you for the recipe ... it's now in my recipe book!
