I won grand champion prize at our church's chili fest using this tasty recipe. Quick and easy to make too!
What an excellent, unique chili recipe. The BF loves any savory dish that contains fruit, so the pineapple was a selling point for us. I used turkey ham because it was a bit lower fat than the regular and on sale, otherwise, we made this as posted. So delicious! We've made this several times and it's part of our usual rotation now.
My DH really liked this! Because I am trying to cut down on our sodium, I used 1 cup of dried pinto beans and 1 cup of dried navy beans. I cooked these, then drained the beans, added the rest of the ingredients, and heated through. Thanks for a very good recipe!
This was a nice tasting chili, & I liked the combination of pineapple & ham! Served it over a slice of multigrain bread with the cheese! I did divide the chili in half BEFORE adding the pineapple chunks, & added those to only half of the chili! The other half I froze to see how it keep for a few weeks! (Have done the same thing, successfully with a Hawaiian chicken chili recipe that I'd made!) Thanks for sharing! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's PAC]
