Fire and Ice Chili

To me this is a very elegant dish, first given to me from Dole, many years ago in Atlanta. I like as many veggies as meat, so I only use one and a half pounds of tenderloin and I cut my green pepper and second onion in large chunks to match the meat I cut into one inch chunks, since I use pork tenderloin.
