Instructions

Prep
1
  • Peel, then cut onion into 1/4-inch pieces.
  • Core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces.
  • Roughly chop cilantro. 
  • Core, then finely chop jalapeño. (TIP: We suggest using gloves when prepping jalapeño!) 

 

Cook veggies
2
  • Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. 
  • When the pot is hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then peppers and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) jalapeños. (NOTE: Reference heat guide.) 
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies are tender-crisp, 5-6 min. 
  • Season with salt and pepper, to taste. 
  • Remove from heat. Transfer veggies to a plate. 
Cook pork
3
  • Reheat the same pot over medium.
  • When the pot is hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then pork and onions.
  • Cook, breaking up pork into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.**
  • Carefully drain and discard excess fat.
  • Add garlic puree and Mexican Seasoning. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
Cook chili
4
  • Add crushed tomatoes and 1/2 cup (1 cup) water to the pot with pork. Stir to combine, then bring to a boil over high.
  • Once boiling, reduce heat to medium.
  • Simmer, stirring occasionally, until chili thickens slightly, 10-12 min. (TIP: If you have time, keep it simmering on the stove for longer. Chili gets better the longer it cooks!)

 

Finish and serve
5
  • When chili is done, add veggies. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Cook, stirring often, until warmed through, 2-3 min.
  • Divide chili between bowls.
  • Dollop sour cream over top, then sprinkle with cilantro and cheese.

If you've opted to get pork, cook it in the same way the recipe instructs you to cook the beef.
