This was a great chili! I modified it a bit and added chili powder crushed red pepper & a couple of fresh hot peppers because I like my chili to be spicy and it was a perfect sweet&spicy mix. I brought my modified recipe to a chili cookoff and won "most unique". Read More

I liked this but I can't say that I loved it. My husband and son said that it was good but they don't think that they would want it again. If I try it again I would have to eliminate some of the sweetness. Read More

I'm probably one of the most inept cooks on the planet and this recipe turned out great for me. My daughter is a picky eater and she loved it. Read More

This was good...but not great. I have had much better. The pineapple was a nice addition and I might include that in my go-to chili recipe. Note: my 3yo LOVED it! Read More

I admit I made some changes to this based on what I had available but I stuck to the recipe as much as I could and think it turned out pretty tasty. It had a nice sweet flavor to it and it was definitely a change of pace. I served with cheddar cheese on top and cornbread on the side. The changes I made were: 1)cubed pork loin chops in place of ground pork that I browned lightly before adding to the slow cooker 2)canned tomato in place of fresh one drained can per tomato called for 3)Slightly less pineapple than called for 4)additional corn kernels in place of baby corn 5)apple juice in place of apple cider 6)additional brown sugar in place of molasses 7)I knew I would be cooking this for 7 hours so I cooked on low instead of high.

Delicious and easy! Don't let the long list of ingredients fool you-this is a very simple recipe. I used regular paprika and regular apple cider and topped our servings with sharp shredded cheddar. We really liked this dish! Read More
