Alo-HA! great idea! just dumped everything including, frozen raw chicken ,into the slow cooker. used taco sauce instead of bbq sauce; we lllooovvee bbq sauce, but dr.colbert doesn't recommend it due to the high level of stealth sugar. used regular hot salsa, so we added paprika to give it more of a smoky flavor. next time, we'll add an additional can of pineapple tidbits with the juice.
I made this because it sounded different but good at the same time. It was ok but nothing special, It took ALLOT longer to prep and make than what it said. I think brown sugar would give a better flavor. I don't know if I will make this agian. Unless I really "tweak" it.
I will never for the life of me understand why people insist on labelling food items as Hawaiian just because they have pineapple as an ingredient. This recipe has a lot going on, but very little going for it. I decided to give it a shot to see if something interesting might play out from the extensive ingredient list. I agree with the previous reviewer that the prep-time is much more than the recipe indicates. Sweetheart is Hawaiian and after the first bowl, he did not care for it.
Based on the other reviews and cost of ingredients for this dish, I was a little leery of trying it but I'm glad I did! The instructions are definitely way too complicated, the point of a slow cooker is to minimize the work. I just mixed the chicken and bbq sauce together first and then threw everything else in (except the pineapple) and cooked on low all day. Used minced onion and garlic puree, crushed tomatoes, 2 tbsp reg chili powder and 1tbsp chipotle chili powder, raspberry chipotle salsa (all I could find). Definitely cut up the pineapple chunks, they are too big right out of the can. The only thing I would try and fix is the sauce ratio. There seemed to be too much sauce and not enough chicken and beans.
Just so so. I would not make this chili again. Quite disappointed!
This was fantastic! Had a couple tweaks due to ingredients on hand, and it was a hit for dinner! Definitely making this one again!
as it sits the recipe is something that is a nice change up - it has a lot of flavors - i have tweeked it and have gotten a lot of thumbs up and requests for the recipe - what i did was take off 1 tbsp od regular chili powder i added 1 20 oz can of diced tomatoes - i like italian style - and i also added 1 more can of pineapple and pinneapple juice - im thinking about adding a third can of pineapples but not the juice from the other can. a friend of mine suggested if i want to really kick it add a can of adobo chili peppers just like the can that san marcos makes. if i do i will let you all know.
I loved this recipe! It is now one of our favorites. I used all chili powder, as I did not have ancho chile powder and used tomato sauce instead of chopped tomotoes. It was delicious. Thanks for sharing.
