Hawaiian-style chili is a unique take on traditional chili, incorporating elements that reflect the flavors and ingredients popular in Hawaiian cuisine.

Here’s a recipe for you to try: Ingredients 2 lbs ground beef 1 large onion, diced 1 bell pepper, diced 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce 1 can (15 oz) diced tomatoes 1 can (6 oz) tomato paste 2 cans (15 oz each) kidney beans, drained and rinsed 1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed 1 can (20 oz) pineapple chunks, drained (reserve juice) 2 cups beef broth 1/4 cup brown sugar 2 tbsp soy sauce 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce 2 tsp chili powder 1 tsp ground cumin 1 tsp paprika 1/2 tsp ground black pepper 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional, for heat) 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (for garnish) Cooked white rice (for serving) Instructions Brown the Beef: In a large pot or Dutch oven, cook the ground beef over medium heat until it is browned. Drain excess fat.

Add Aromatics: Add the diced onion, bell pepper, and minced garlic to the pot. Cook until the vegetables are tender, about 5-7 minutes.

Combine Ingredients: Stir in the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, and tomato paste. Mix well. Add Beans and Pineapple: Add the kidney beans, black beans, and pineapple chunks to the pot. Stir to combine.

Season and Simmer:

Pour in the beef broth and reserved pineapple juice. Add the brown sugar, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, ground cumin, paprika, black pepper, salt, and crushed red pepper flakes (if using).

Stir well. Cook: Bring the chili to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and let it simmer for at least 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. This allows the flavors to meld together. Serve: Serve the chili over cooked white rice and garnish with chopped fresh cilantro. Tips For a spicier chili, you can add more crushed red pepper flakes or a diced jalapeƱo pepper.

This chili tastes even better the next day after the flavors have had more time to develop. You can also serve the chili with toppings like shredded cheese, sour cream, or chopped green onions. Enjoy your Hawaiian-style chili!
