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.
