Turned out very good. 3 cups of sugar seemed excessive, especially with sugar sprinkled on top, so I only used 2 cups and it was still sweet, but a little tart - perfect. Next time I might whip the egg whites before folding in and see what happens - they got pretty foamy while I was beating them with the butter and sugar, but I was using a hand mi"

This was delicious! I made it for my brother, who swears he doesn't like soups and stews (he believes white bean chili falls into this category) and he went back for seconds and thirds. It did come out a little more soupy than I would normally expect for a chili, but it was so flavorful no one minded. I will definitely make it again.""

I added some links of hot Italian sausage to the ground beef, but it tasted like it needed more. I did like it, but I'm going to keep searching for a better recipe.

I didn't personally care for this recipe. The flavor was certainly unique, and my boyfriend enjoyed it, but to me it tasted too sweet, and slightly burnt at the same time. I cooked the pork chops in a skillet because I don't have a grill, and it may have lost some essential flavor that way. If you make this, watch the sauce carefully while it is reducing....
