Smoky Pork Chili
Nothing is easier or smells better than this smoky take on the popular southwestern stew. Serve over hot cooked rice, if desired, and garnish with chopped cilantro.
1 ½ pounds boneless pork sirloin roast, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 cup salsa, mild or hot
1 cup barbecue sauce
1 1 ¼-oz. package taco seasoning mix
2 cups frozen corn kernels
1 15-oz. can chickpeas, drained
1 15-oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
Combine pork, salsa, barbecue sauce, taco seasoning, corn and chickpeas in a 3 ½-4 quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on High 4-5 hours or Low 8-10 hours. Stir in beans, cover and let stand 10 minutes, enough time for beans to heat through. Serves six.
