This is a nice change from the beef most use in chili. I give it a thumbs up!

I tried this but used what I had in my pantry. Instead of green pepper, used a 4 oz can of green chillis, used diced flavored tomatoes instead of the whole canned tomatoes crushed, and used 2 8oz cans of pork and beans instead of kidney beans. Since I was out of tomato sauce, I threw in my leftover spaghetti sauce! This tasted best served the next day, but turned out great!
Delicious chili and the addition of the cheddar makes it even better! I used an aged white cheddar, and served it with tortilla chips, perfect. The chunks of pork in the chili is a lovely change from regular chili and really excellent. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for posting.
