Wayne Gretzky's Chili Con Carne

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Sharon in Ontario.

This is a recipe printed in our home town newspaper years ago. It stated this was Wayne's favourite recipe for chili con carne. It has a good mix of tastes and textures and the surprise ingredient, pineapple, adds a cool refreshing finish.

This has been my only chili recipe for over 20 years, though I do mix it up a bit and add a lot more hot sauce.
