Smoky Pork Chili

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.
