This was great! I used pork tenderloin, and a can of chopped tomatoes instead of the tomato, also added a small can of kidney beans. My 18 year old loved this, thanks for posting. :)

I've used this recipe as a base recipe, and have usually quadrupled the ingredients so I can share it at work, with my friends. I add cilantro to mine, and use three times the garlic recommended. Also, a good blend of sweet chiles with a couple of jalapenos has given me best results. Freshest ingredients possible makes the best chile. Love it!
