ISO Hawaiian Style Chili recipes

Reading another thread reminded me that I'm looking for a good Hawaiian style chili recipe specifically similar to Zippy's if possible. I lived there for a few years as a kid and now that I'm suck in the midwest, it would be nice to enjoy it like I remember it over rice, bean burrito, or butter cornbread.

    Not Quite Zippy’s Chili Recipe

    ■1 lb lean ground beef
    ■1 Round onion, finely chopped
    ■1/4 lb ground Portuguese Sausage
    ■1 large can Red kidney beans
    ■1 large can tomato sauce
    ■1/2 cup celery, chopped
    ■1/2 cup bell pepper, chopped
    ■3 tbsp real mayonnaise
    ■2 tsp red wine
    ■1 tsp powdered chicken bouillon
    ■1 bay leaf, crushed
    ■1 tsp chili powder
    ■1 tsp Ajinomoto (MSG)
    ■1/2 tsp sugar
    ■1/4 tsp dried oregano
    ■1/4 tsp grated ginger
    ■1 dash Worcestershire sauce
    ■1 pinch paprika
    ■1 pinch ground cumin

    1.Brown hamburger and halfway through, add onions and celery. Cook until onions are turning translucent.
    2.Add all remaining ingredients. Simmer for 1+ hours.

    My changes:
    ■Did not drain the kidney beans
    ■Doubled chili powder and cumin
    ■Added 3 tbsp mayonnaise
    ■Grated my ginger
    ■Used ground cumin instead of cumin seed

    The original posted recipe lists Cream of Mushroom as a variation, but I haven’t tried that yet.
