Chipotle Peach Pork Chili

A couple of years ago, my 10 year old son and his friends decided they wanted to form a chili cook-off team for the local 4-H and FFA Youth Fair.  They were gung-ho about boys  cooking chili.  Well, like any good recipe-writing mom would do, I set out to write them a recipe that no …
