Dearest readers and eaters, thanks for joining me for Tasty Tuesday 012021. On this blustery winter day, I am sharing a recipe for slow cooker pulled pork chili. We enjoyed a high of 71*F yesterday and even soaked in the hot tub before the sun went down. But today, our high is 25* lower and the winds are really whipping around. Decided it was the perfect day for a chili and cornbread supper.
Let’s Get Cooking: Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Chili
I have only made pulled pork chili once before. Used this recipe that first time and it was quite delicious. One of my winter bucket list activities (update coming later this week), though, is to try some new recipes. So I scoured Pinterest yesterday for a different version of this hearty dish. When I read the ingredients for Debi’s chili, I knew I had found my new recipe to try.
Grab your crock pot and meet me in the kitchen!!
This recipe earns extra credit at our house because it can be thrown (and forgotten) in the crock pot. But there was also one ingredient that caught my eye and told me this was a recipe I had to try. And that rhymes!!
Can you guess which one?
I’ll give you a little hint. It’s in the center of that photo. Yup, unsweetened cocoa. If we’ve gone out for Mexican food together, you probably remember how much I love mole poblano. Of which sweet chocolate is a main ingredient. I could eat my weight in mole. And double my weight eating it!! You can read more about this incredible sauce, here.
Seeing cocoa in this pulled pork chili almost ensured – for me – that it was going to be savory, rich and delicious. Here’s what else the recipe calls for.
