      I’ve never been to Kenny Rogers so I don’t know any of the meals.  Adding pineapple is definitely a new twist for me, but I really hate to use a pork loin for chili! LOL!  Since I’ve never had the chili, maybe I’ll use ground pork sausage.  I’ve made chili with pork sausage and Italian sweet sausage — both were awesome.  I do want to try this twist with the pineapple;-D
