This is the Best chili recipe you will ever find! It is not your typical beef chili – it is a pork chili. Yes, you’ve heard me correct we are using pork because it has so much more flavor than the beef.
I love chili but let me tell you something, when it comes to it, I am very picky. I love eating good hearty chili. Chili that is thick, just the right amount of spicy, beany but not overwhelmingly. I want to taste the small chunks of tomatoes.
- It’s made with delicious and juicy ground pork
- it’s so much more flavorful than the beef chili
- spicy, without being super hot
- the perfect balance of spicy, sweet, salty and fatty
Chili con carne, meaning “chili with meat”, is a spicy stew containing chili peppers, meat, tomatoes and optionally kidney beans.
Looking for a hearty soup that the whole family will enjoy? Then you need a bowl of warm comfort food that the whole family can enjoy – a bowl of this delicious chili con carne.
- brown the meat – it will give you an amazing flavor
- don’t rush to add the veggies
- let is stew for at least 45 minutes. Let the flavors develop
- use a good combination of chili peppers, jalapeno, poblano, etc.

- Sour cream
- Green onions
- Cheddar cheese
- Crispy bacon
- Tortilla chips
- Corn bread
Now let me introduce you to my new favorite chili con carne
|Ground pork||2 pounds|

In a large Dutch oven heat the oil and then add the ground pork. Season with salt and black pepper. Brown the meat over medium-high heat for 7-10 minutes. While the meat is browning, chop the peppers and onion. Add the vegetables in the pot and sauté for a few minutes until tender (about 4-5 minutes).
Add tomatoes, beans, broth, and all the spices. Bring to a low simmer. Cover it and let it hang out over low heat for at least 30-45 minutes. Ideally you would want to cook it for 1 1/2 + hours. Stir occasionally. Then simmer uncovered until the chili thickens, about 10-15 minutes.
Ladle into bowls and serve with grated cheddar cheese, sour cream and green onions for toppings or your favorite ones.
