We study strong-coupling lattice QCD with staggered-Wilson fermions, with an emphasis on the possibility of spontaneous parity breaking. We perform effective potential analysis in the strong-coupling limit. From gap equations we find the pion condensate becomes nonzero in some range of a mass parameter, which indicates the existence of the parity-broken phase. We also find massless pions and PCAC relations around the second-order phase boundary. These results suggest that we can take the chiral limit by tuning a mass parameter in lattice QCD with staggered-Wilson fermions as with the Wilson fermion.
