Nutrition Facts: View label


1 pound lean pork (ground or small cubes)
1 cup diced onion
1 teaspoon cumin
2 teaspoons chili powder
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon oregano
1 can (15 ounces) beans, drained and rinsed (any type)
1 cup corn, fresh, frozen, or canned, drained and rinsed
2 cups low-sodium broth
1 cup (8-ounce can) diced green chiles


  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. In a large saucepan, brown pork with onion. Stir in cumin, chili powder, pepper, garlic powder and oregano.
  3. Add beans, corn, broth and green chilies. Bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.


  • 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.
