This was a great recipe! My family enjoyed it and it was tasty. The only thing I would suggest is adding another can of beans, but that may just be preference.

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.
