Ground pork, pineapple salsa, fire roasted tomatoes and black beans mingle together in a large pot to create a one of a kind, unforgettable chili. A diced fresh pineapple topping makes for the ultimate combination of sweet and smokey in this Pineapple Pork Chili.
Hello, Sunday! I’m excited to by joining my friends for another Sunday Supper event. This week’s theme is a Chili Cook-off! Not only do I love to cook, but I also happen to be a highly competitive person. Ask my family. Some even refuse to play board games with me…
What a fun twist on our typical Sunday round-up!
My “everyday” chili, the one that I create on a fairly frequent basis during the cold winter months, is my Beer Braised Beanless Chili. But for today, I wanted to share something a little less traditional. Something packed with unexpected flavors that work together so well, yet your mind can’t wrap itself around the idea of how it’s possible. Pineapple? Pork? Yes, please!
Ground pork, pineapple salsa, fire roasted tomatoes and black beans mingle together in a large pot to create a one of a kind, unforgettable chili. The fact that there is absolutely no chopping or prep work involved means that it takes less than 30 minutes to bring this dish from kitchen to table.
But my favorite part? The part that is always the show stopper, although always given a quizzical first glance? The garnish of fresh, diced pineapple on top. There’s something about the combination of sweet, juicy fruit paired with the smoky heat of the chili itself that keeps you coming back for more.

Like a little more heat in your chili? I’ve also substituted mango habanero salsa for the pineapple salsa with great results. It’s delicious either way Just don’t forget to serve with a side of Simple Sweet Cornbread!
