Aloha Chili

My brother and I were born with cystic fibrosis. About nine years ago, he was given the chance to go on a wish trip through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. My whole family was able to go to Honolulu, HI, for about a week. That was one great trip, and I would love to go back someday. I've never had so much fresh pineapple in my life. Even McDonald's gave you a huge serving of pineapple with your breakfast order. By the time we came home, I was actually sick of pineapple.

My mom and I found the following recipe lately and decided it sounded really good. Neither of us can remember where we found it, so I can't give credit to the right person, but thank you to the person who came up with this one! While it is called chili, there is no chili powder or chili peppers in it. This is a perfect recipe for a cold winter night {we've certainly had our share of those the last few days!}, and isn't too high on Points Plus values for those following Weight Watchers.
Aloha Chili
Yield: 8 servings

What You Need
1 large onion, chopped
1 large green pepper, chopped
20 oz. pineapple junks, fresh or canned, in juice if canned
15 oz. canned kidney beans
15 3/4 oz. can pork and beans
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
20 oz. uncooked 93% lean ground turkey
salt and ground black pepper, to taste
1 Tbsp. olive oil

What To Do
1. Heat olive oil in a large pot or dutch oven. Cook onion and green pepper over medium heat until they begin to soften.
2. Add ground turkey and cook until no longer pink.
3. Add remaining ingredients and simmer until heated through.

  1. HI Emily,

    This sounds like a nice change from your more typical chili recipe. Loved your comments about pineapple and HI, I remember being so shocked and delighted when served fresh pineapple at McDonalds!
