Delicious! My "normal" chili uses beef so I liked the variation of using pork. It didn't quite have a fajita flavor but it was scrumptious nonetheless. Let it simmer a bit longer if you have the time.0

My husband rarely eats leftovers but I swear I think he would eat this for a whole week straight! I have to at least half the chili powder in it because I don't care for spicy food but even half still gives it a kick. Wonderful recipe, we love it.

I won a chili cook-off in our town with this recipe. I did add cumin and substituted black beans for half of the chili beans when I doubled the recipe.
