Chili caribbeano

My eyes lit up when a woman brought me a copy of this Chili Caribbeano recipe that a friend had shared with her. There’s lots of chili recipes out there and I do love my chili. but what caught my attention is that this recipe calls for pineapple. I love sweet and savory. I love to put pineapple in spicy dishes and it had never occurred to me to add pineapple to my chili.

There’s lots of fun, healthy and delicious things you can do to this recipe. I’d probably add corn, zucchini and  summer squash when I make this. Oh  and shredded carrots. Part of the joy in recipes like this is you can add or take away ingredients and make it your own. I just know that my next batch of chili is going have pineapple!
