"This is a very good chili made with pineapple for sweetness. Since this is a large recipe, you might want to go half-batch if this is just for a small family."

  1. Heat a large Dutch oven until hot over high heat. Add the ground beef, and cook until barely pink, stirring constantly to break into small pieces. Stir in onions and bell pepper, cook until the meat has browned, and the onions have softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Pour meat into a large mesh strainer and press to expel excess fat.
  2. Place meat back into Dutch oven along with stewed tomatoes, kidney beans, tomato sauce, and pineapple chunks; season with chili powder and salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes, or until chili reaches desired consistency.

Thought this was very good. The only changes I made were using turkey burger instead of ground beef.

This just tasted like regular chili to me. I could not taste the pineapple. Maybe crushed pineapple would work better. It did make a lot, as the recipe states. I got more than 10 servings.

I cut the recipe to 6 servings and the onions to approx. one. My husband and I really enjoyed this! Thank you.

Loved it. I cut this recipe in half and one large onion was ENOUGH. I also decided to take the previous reviewer's advice and add in the juice from the canned pineapple. If I had served it i...
