Recipe by USA WEEKEND columnist Pam Anderson
"Serve a simple bowl of chili and guests will be content. Zip in fun, colorful condiments and you've got a party. The chili yields about 5 quarts without the beans, and may be cooled, covered, and refrigerated or up to 3 days and reheated when ready to serve."

The fact that I spent nearly a year searching for this recipe after I lost it should tell you how many RAVES I get each time I make it! I use whatever beef and pork cuts are on sale and cook them in my slow cooker over night, making it a snap to cook the next day. This is the ONLY chili my husband will eat without the beans!
Vert time cosuming, and not very good.
I made this last year for Super Bowl and we all liked it okay. I froze what was left and took it out this year. I added an additional can of black beans, kidney beans, two cans of pinto beans, frozen lima beans and frozen corn. It was amazing!!! I had originally discarded the recipe thinking I probably would not make it again. I was glad to find it again. I would have given it 3 stars, but the second time around with the changes made it a 5 star for sure!
yum---yummm.. whole crowd liked it ,but for myself I would add jalapeno juice or cook the peppers in ...
I made this for Super Bowl Sunday last year and it was a big hit! The gang has begged me to make it again this year. It's more involved than the usual chili recipe, but well worth the trouble. Great leftovers.
I use 2 pork shoulders in place of the ribs, increase the seasonings and time in the oven. The result is a huge amount of tender yummy chili. Love this!!
As a Huge chili lover, I have to try this soon. I will however smoke my chuck roasts and ribs and try it that way. I have always used ground beef and sausage in my chili, but this sounds better. Will let everyone know how it went.
I've made this 3-times and get raves about it. My wife doesn't like the flavor of chocolate in this. One time I made it without chocolate and it still got raves.
