BBQ PINEAPPLE PORK CHILI

Ingredients:

  • 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



Directions:


  1. Heat the avocado oil over medium-high in a large skillet.  Add the ground pork, and cook until no longer pink.

  2. Toss the pork and all remaining ingredients into a slow cooker, and give it a good stir to combine.

  3. Cook for 6-7 hours on "low" or 4-5 hours on "high".

  4. Top with extra pineapple, chopped onion, and cilantro (if you like) and serve hot!


*Notes:

  • 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!
