Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Chili

IMG_1778

It's fairly common to find a recipe that includes chicken or turkey or a nice meatless meal gracing our dinner table. If I had my way we would have a whole lot more meatless meals at dinner time. Unfortunately, the rest of my family is less than thrilled with my "Let's go vegetarian!" dreams. Darn! And so I find myself on the fence once again. I ran across this rich and hearty pulled pork chili recipe and I surrendered. I admit it, I'm weak and completely lacking in self control. ;D

Honestly, I think I liked the flavor of this chili more than the rest of the crew. It has a hint of sweet smokiness. It's rich and full of marvelous flavor.

I'm still all for adding more meatless meals to our diets. I believe limiting meat is healthier and every bit as satisfying. Balance. It's all about balance.

Mmm... coffee, cumin and honey? Wonderful spices for the pork. I definitely could do this with or without meat.

I am all about the vegetarian meals but I have to admit that my one meat weakness is pulled pork. This is a good reminder htat it's been way too long since I've made it! This sounds so good!

I would like a lot more meatless meals too, but my fiance would not really go for it. He would love something like this!

I wish I could pull the meatless meals off on my husband but I get that 'look' when I suggest it. But this chili does look and sound fabulous!

Happy Friday indeed! I'm with you on eating more meatless meals. I don't think my husband would go for it though. I do find that I really look forward to anything with pork though and this pulled pork chili looks really special.

You're right...balance is the key! I love meatless meals too, but meat in moderation is never a bad thing. I love the sound of this pulled pork chili! :)

Pulled pork is so freaking great. You made me hungry for it now... maybe I'll get ambitious and go to the grocery store to buy the ingredients!

Velva said...

The chili looks really good. I never thought to use a pulled pork as a foundation. This is a great idea.

Have a great weekend.

This is going in my crockpot Tuesday morning. It's going to be rainy and cold and this will be the perfect dish. I wanted to cook soup or a good casserole and came to you "first".
I'm with you on the meatless wishes, but receive no cooperation from hubby......
I can't wait for a big bowl of this one!!!
