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.

How to Make "Hawaiian Chili"

Step-by-Step

  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.
