This was great with the pineapple and so easy! I used 4 different kinds of beans and added celery and zucchini and a little cayenne pepper for heat. Full of flavor! I will make again and again! I didn't have any mushrooms or peppers but it was stll great!
This was very tasty. I used 1 can each of kidney beans, black beans and navy beans. I added salt even though it was not called for in the recipe. The pineapple added a very nice flavor but I found the dish overall to be a little bland. I will probably add some chipotle next time.
This chili was awesome! I made it yesterday and since I'm the only veg head in my family it's gonna last me all week. I did change and add a few things.. I used 3 different kinds of beans, black, pinto and kidney.. Much better variety like said before.. I also added zucchini, celery, garlic and jalepenos. Instead of crushed pineapple I used diced.. Put half the can in food processor to chop it up but really enjoyed having the chunks.. For the tomatoes I used a can of diced tomatoes w/ green chilis.. I also put it in food processor to make smaller pieces! After it was all done I made a quick pot of rice a side of corn, and a batch of corn bread.. Mixed it all up in a bowl and topped it off with some shredded cheese and sour cream! Yum!!! Still eating as I type !!
I forgot to add the carrots, but it was tasty anyway! Served it with shredded cheddar and a dollop of sour cream on top. I tossed it all in the crockpot before I left for work this morning, put it on "6 hours" (my pot switches to a warming mode after cook time is finished). It was awesome walking into the house tonight to the smell -- made some quick cornbread muffins, and YUM!
This was pretty good! It taste just like chili with meat when I added a few more chili seasoning packets and more chili powder. Pineapples made it a little bitter, which required me to do some seasoning of my own.
This chili is excellent. I added some garlic, and have also added other vegetables. And because I don't like the texture of pineapple, I pureed the pineapple - worked great. (Note that my cooking times are high because I'm slow - not because the recipe is difficult to make.)
Made this for my vegetarian daughter. She loved it! Took just a few minutes to chop and throw everything in crock pot and presto! I too used a variety of beans. My one negative with this recipe was the carrots. Pineapple! who knew? Yum!
This was my first time eating chili EVER! Loved it! I added about 3 cloves of garlic, 1 zuchini, and some chopped celery & only used 1 can of beans (Organic chili beans - pinto, black and kidney). The main reason I avoid chili is because of the beans. I love the pineapple - it gives it a sweet, tangy taste. Thanks so much for the recipe.
