Pork Chili

Notes

Recipe Notes

  • Try adding cilantro on top for more flavor.
  • Broth can be made at home, purchased in a can or box, or made using bouillon. For each cup of broth use 1 cup very hot water and 1 teaspoon or 1 cube bouillon.
  • Cook your own dry beans. One can (15 ounces) is about 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups drained beans.

My family loves this recipe!  I always make a double batch for our family of 5.  I add extra oregano and cumin to taste and often stir in pumpkin puree or cubed butternut squash to give us our beta-carotene.  Diced avocado is a nice topping for this chili.
