Spicy Pork Chili with White Beans Recipe

Publisher Photo
This chili, loaded with white beans and cubes of pork, has plenty of bite. But if it’s not spicy enough for you, top it with shredded jalapeno jack cheese and finely diced onions. —Larry Laatsch, Saginaw, Michigan

MY REVIEW

This was a hit. I forgot to put in the 2 cups of water and I used regular pork loin instead of tenderloin and it works just fine. With the length of time it takes to cook, the meat gets very tender. Next time I think I might try it in the slow cooker.

I have made this many times. It's my favorite chili. I halved the recipe as there are just 3 of us. Also, for the people that say it's too many beans, just leave out a can or two. And it tastes best if you follow the recipe and use a fresh pork tenderloin, not a left over piece of meat.

I meant to say could get away with using a pork loin roast!

Way too many beans and a waste of pork tenderloin. You get away with using pork loin roast, it would taste the same. I was disappointed in this recipe.
