WOW I'd give this recipe more stars if I could! I made this in the crockpot. I browned the bacon pork and onions the night before and then threw everything else in the crockpot. The next morning I set it on low while I worked all day my house smelled amazing when I got home! The flavors of this chili are amazing it has a nice smoky flavor! Read More

Everyone loved this! The smokiness of the paprika with the flavorful marinated pork and bacon gave this great flavor. The only change I made was to cook this in the slow cooker all day so that we could have it immediately after our apple picking trip. Served it with buttermilk cornbread. Yum! Read More

My husband loved this chili and he's very picky when it comes to chili as he considers himself a connoisseur. My kids weren't big fans of this recipe however neither one is a big chili fan period. I'm giving it 4 stars for my husband loving it and for how easy it was to prepare. Read More

This was a tastey dish. It stretched my imagination a bit though to think of it as chili. The fire roasted tomatoes were the star in this recipe. It was more of a pork soup or stew than a chili dish IMHO. Read More

This was really very good. I made 1 1/2 recipe so we would have leftovers - epic fail should have doubled it! The best thing we sat and threw out ideas to add transform and tweek the recipe for future meals! I put this chili on in the morning after browning the pork and cooking the bacon/onions into the crock pot. Let it go on high for 6 hours. Amazing. Added some sour cream to top it off. Some of our ideas were to let the chili thicken I mean really thicken - simmer off until it resembles creamy refried beans and make burritos - our use it as a base for a tostado. We will surely have this meal again especially in the upcoming winter months... If we get any winter... Read More

My family loved this chili. The pork was tender and very flavorful. We topped with a little shredded cheddar and ate with a side of cornbread muffins. Will make again;) Read More
