Fabulous chili cg! The flavor was amazing. I used 1 pound of boneless pork chops, and 1 pound of ground pork. And I didn't have any cumin seeds, so I ended up using 2 tbsp of ground cumin--yum! I also had to sub white wine vinegar for the red--someone finished it and didn't tell me, lol. Anyway, everything else was done just as your recipe says. If anyone is thinking that 2 onions is a lot, trust me, it isn't. They really cook down. So--the meat was very tender and the chili simmered for about 1 1/2 hours. The house smelled so good. I would make this again in a heartbeat--beans and all! Oh! You HAVE to put the grated cheese and dollop of sour cream on your bowl of this chili--it is delicious! Thanks cg! :)
