Valerie's notes for this recipe:
A friend told me about how she had found a Hawaiian Chicken Chili. I decided to challenge myself to come up with a Hawaiian Beef Chili. I find it more difficult to make beef salty, spicy and sweet without being overpowering, this came out wonderfully spicy.

Directions

1
Brown the beef with the garlic and onions, add in all the spices and olive oil. You can make this all in one pan if you use a very large skillet or pot. (If using a fattier meat, brown the meat(without the oil) , onions and garlic together, strain off the grease. Return to pot and add the spices)
2
Once the beef is browned nicely and just starts to stick a little to the bottom, add in the pineapple, juice and all. Cook it into the beef about 5 minutes and slowly add in the beans and rotel tomatoes, you want all the juices from the beans and tomatoes as well.(Again a fattier meat will not start to stick to the pan, which is ok, just make sure the meat is thoroughly cooked)
3
After adding in the beans and tomatoes slowly bring to a nice simmer, about 10 minutes. Taste and add accordingly, more salt or pepper chili powders for more heat, however you like it.
4
Serve as is or a dollop of sour cream, monterey cheeses anything that you usually like with your chili. A sweet honey cornbread would be delicious.
