Poblano pork chili -- our favorite chili!

Don't get me wrong... we like chili in our house. But, we've just never LOVED it. Until now! We absolutely love this Poblano Pork Chili recipe. It's surprisingly light for a chili, has no tomatoes, and is nice and spicy. We make this recipe several times and month... we just can't get enough!

Keep reading below for pictures and this awesome recipe!

Here's what you'll need:
  • 1 to 1.5 lb. ground pork
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 1 poblano pepper, seeded 
  • 4-5 stalks celery, tops/leaves cut off
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 3/4 to 1 cup ketchup
  • A couple squirts of tomato paste
  • 2 cans Bush's hot chili beans (they are the best!)
  • 2 cups water
  • 2-4 tsp. of chili powder (to taste)
  • 1/2-1 tsp of cayenne pepper (to taste)
Okay, here we go!

1. Chop up the celery, onion, and pepper.

2. Add onions, celery, pepper, garlic, and pork to large skillet. Salt and pepper to taste. Cook until pork is browned and vegetables are slightly softened. Drain. Add the pork/vegetable mixture to a large crock pot.

3. Add ketchup, tomato paste, water, beans, and seasonings to crock pot...

... mix it up and let it cook on low 2-6 hours (as long as you want!). Doesn't it look amazing already?!

ENJOY! It's nice and "light" -- with a thin base instead of a thick, saucy one. It makes great leftovers, too!
