Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Chili

Ok, before you look at the ingredients list and tell me to piss off, it's really not that bad. 9 of the ingredients are just cans that need to be opened and one is a packet of taco seasoning. As for the onions and garlic, you can easily chop them up the night before to save on time. Go ahead and mix the spices together too in a little dish. That way in the morning, all you've got to do is just open some cans and dump everything into the slow cooker.

This was really good. I realized after loading the pictures that they look almost exactly like This Recipe, but that was a chicken chili...similar, but different :) I served this with cornbread. Nothing fancy, just the packet mix. I did have a bunch of jalapenos left over though, so I threw some into the cornbread batter. Heath loves jalapenos, so he ate most of it. I had one piece and ate around them.

Ok guys, I'm off. Got to jump in the shower then head to the gym. I'm doing Zumba for the first time ever today...should be interesting. I'm trying to build up my cardo tolerance. I can lift weights all day, but when it comes to running or any type of cardio, I'm a heavy-breathing mess.

Ok, have a great day and I'll see y'all Friday!

  1. Zumba is so fun -- but you have to give it a couple times. The first time is really tough because you will probably feel lost. It gets easier :) Enjoy!

  2. It says 1/4 BBQ Sauce. Assuming you mean cup but wanted to make sure?

    1. It is 1/4 cup...thanks for letting me know, I've fixed it :)
