Chili with Slow Cooked Pork

Chili is one of those dishes that packs in everything you need in a meal. Meat, veggies and protein. How can you can wrong? Usually, I make chili using ground turkey but I decided to shake things up a bit and added slow cooked pork instead. My original plan for the pork was to make shredded BBQ pork sandwiches but my family was not in the mood for BBQ. So I figured I would try the pork in a pot of chili to see how it would taste.

After trying chili with slow cooked pork I am not sure I will ever make chili with ground turkey again. The tenderness of the pork combined with the beans and chili seasonings turned the chili into a delicious flavorful meal. Sports fans would love this chili after any “big” game especially with a side of cornbread.
