Pork chili, made as spicy hot as you can want! Can be cooked in a slow cooker, such as a crock-pot.

Suggestions: NOTE: This is a very hot spicy dish! Yet, if you want it hotter, use more seranno peppers. If you want it somewhat milder, use more jalapeno peppers.

* Roasting the peppers is the time consuming step. The easiest way is to grill the peppers on a gas/charcoal grill at high temperature until the skin blisters, then toss into a paper bag to steam. Then cool, peel, deseed and chop.

Serves: 12 person(s)

Preparation Time: 1 hrs
Cooking Time: 3 hrs
Extra Time: 3 hrs (if using a slow cooker, and extra 30 minutes for added peppers)


    1.81 kg Poblano and/or Anaheim chili peppers (4 - 5 lbs = 2½ - 3 lbs after prep)
    1.36 kg boneless pork loin, lean only, cut into 1-inch cubes
    3 medium onions, coarsely chopped
    6 large or 10 medium cloves garlic, minced
    3 Tbsp Mexican or 4 Tbsp. regular oregano
    1,142.86 g beef broth
    0.45 kg jalapeno and serrano peppers (1 - 2 lbs, mixed), (optional)


    CHILI: Roast Poblano and/or Anaheim chili peppers. Cool, peel, deseed and chop roasted peppers into 1/2 to 1 1/2-inch pieces.*

    Place roasted peppers and remaining ingredients into a large pan or slow cooker. In pan, bring ingredients to a boil and simmer for 3 to 4 hours (or in a slow cooker, cook on high for 6 hours or 8 to 10 hours on medium).

    (OPTIONAL) EXTRA SPICY "HOT-EM-UP-AT-THE-TABLE" CHILI DRESSING: Place chopped jalapeno and serrano peppers in a pan and cover with water, water to reach 1-inch above peppers. Bring to a boil and simmer for at least 30 minutes. Serve these peppers on the side for those who want "heat".

Microwave Directions:

    Do not microwave.


    Can serve on cooked rice or on baked corn tortilla chips (such as nachos), or as a stew, or as chili with tortilla chips as a side. Suggested accompanying beverages, choose water, iced tea, or light beer.
