When I think of cozy foods, I think of slow cooker and one-pot recipes, when you know you have a busy day ahead, or you don’t have time for dinner prep.

Val’s new book is great for getting a meal on the table for your family or dinner guests.

For this chili recipe, think easy. You cook it low and slow for a good part of the day, the pork cooking right into the sauce. Then you add corn and 2 kinds of beans.

Serve this chili with tortilla chips or slices of warm cornbread.

How to make Pulled Pork Chili

  1. The first step in the process is to brown the pork, and then transfer the browned meat to a 6-quart slow cooker.
  2. Then brown the jalapeno, onion, and garlic and transfer it to the slow cooker with the cubed pork.
  3. Add a big can of crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, and green chilies and all the seasonings.
  4. Cover and cook until the pork cubes are nice and tender.
  5. Since canned beans are already cooked, the texture can become mushy and really undesirable if they hang out for too long in the slow cooker. This is why Val adds them towards the end of the initial cooking time in all of her slow cooker recipes. Add the rinsed and drained beans and corn and let the chili cook for an additional 30 minutes before serving; just long enough to warm them through.
