BBQ PINEAPPLE PORK CHILI
1 lb ground pork
1 Tbsp avocado oil
1 white onion, chopped*
1 red or green bell pepper, chopped*
1 1/2 cups chopped pineapple*
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce
2 Tbsp tomato paste
1 Tbsp each: chili powder, ginger puree, Dijon mustard
1 tsp each: cumin, salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, dried onion
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Heat the avocado oil over medium-high in a large skillet. Add the ground pork, and cook until no longer pink.
Toss the pork and all remaining ingredients into a slow cooker, and give it a good stir to combine.
Cook for 6-7 hours on "low" or 4-5 hours on "high".
Top with extra pineapple, chopped onion, and cilantro (if you like) and serve hot!
I substituted a 14 oz bag of frozen "Fire Roasted Bell Peppers & Onions" from Trader Joe's to save time and add some extra flavor.
You can use fresh pineapple, or frozen chopped pineapple. Crushed pineapple would taste yummy too!
