Bold Bean and Pork Chili Recipe
This tempting chili is big on flavor and really very simple to prepare. Sometimes on a Sunday, I'll get a good start on it—up to where it's time to add the beans. Then the next day, I'll take it out of the fridge and finish it off in just a few minutes. Viola—dinner is quickly served! —Natercia Yailaian Somerville, Massachusetts
