This was not our favorite dish taste-wise, but I'm not a big fan of pork and beans in general. To me the p & b taste was just a little too over-powering. However, I love the addition of the corn, and you can't beat it for simplicity. I'll definitely keep the recipe around for those rushed days when I need something quick and simple to throw in the crockpot!

A sweet stew that gets it sweetness form the juice of the pork and beans. So very easy to make. I mixed it up at 11 this morning and now at 5 PM it is ready to eat. Personally, I don't call this a chili because I never put corn or pork & beans in mine. It has to have kidney beans to be chili in my book. The kids liked it and that's good enough for ZWT III 2007 - United States Region
