Sweaty Pulled Pork Chili
It's getting chilly outside. Speaking of chili, talk about a delectable dish....or bowl. Chili warms the heart like a classic Disney movie might. I would compare the warmth I feel from a stout bowl of chili to the elation you might receive when a puppy jumps into your lap. Which one DOESN'T melt you heart? The answer? They both do.
Lest we not forget to give credit where credit is most definitely due. We took a majority of our culinary inspiration from a fellow Colorado resident, paleOMG. Check out Juli's site. She's a pretty radical woman with an impressive list of Paleo dishes.
Why 'sweaty' chili? Simply because this particular recipe calls for kick. You'll be perspiring more than a tightrope walker traversing the Grand Canyon. When the winter winds are whipping outside it's time to drop a few more logs on the proverbial fire. Kick Jack Frost in the teeth with this concoction.
- 2 to 2 & 1/2 lbs of pork roast (Some recommend you trim the fat but I left it on. Adds to the flavor.)
- 215oz can of diced tomatoes (fire roasted or your call)
- 1 15oz can of tomato sauce
- 1 can of garbanzo beans
- 1/2 a cup to one full cup of Blis Blast Hot Pepper Sauce
- A generous dose of Blis Hardwood Smoked Premium Sea Salt
- Another generous dose of Blis Santa Fe Spice Rub
- 3-4 cloves of garlic
- 2 yellow onions, diced
- 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
- 1 red bell pepper, diced
- 2 jalapenos, diced
- healthy sprinkle of chili red pepper flakes
- Couple pinches of paprika, garlic powder, and cumin
THE DOWN N' DIRTY:
- Place your meat into the Crock Pot (that's what she said?)
- Cover that pork with the salt, paprika, cumin, garlic powder, Sante Fe Rub, and chili flakes
- Carve a few holes in the meat and place smashed garlic cloves right in there
- Fill the pot with your diced peppers, tomatoes, Blast sauce, and beans (be sure to coat that meat with your sauce)
- Cover up the pot and cook on low for 8-10 hours
When that magical dish is ready to be served perhaps consider garnishing with avocado, green onion, a few spoonfuls of plain Greek yogurt, and crushed tortilla chips.
Time to get sweaty. Enjoy!
