Chipotle Pork Chili

"Chipotle Chile: Dried and smoked jalapeno chiles. It is reddish brown in color. These chilies have a smoky flavor and some heat. Which may be an understatement!"

Thanks to Jamie Kerr and Eric Caron from the Tailgate-Zone Website, for sharing this delicious tailgate recipe.

1 tablespoon butter
1 onion, diced
1 pound boneless pork chops, cubed 1/2" x 1/2"
1/8 teaspoon garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/8 teaspoon chives
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon Chipotle Chile Pepper, crushed
1 can pinto beans (15-1/2 oz.)
1 can kidney beans (15-1/2 oz.)
1 can beef broth (14-1/2 oz.)
1 can stewed tomato (14-1/2 oz.)
1 can green chiles (4 oz.)
1 can tomato sauce (8 oz.)
Pepper Jack Cheese, shredded (optional)
Longhorn style cheddar cheese, shredded (optional)
In a large pot, melt the butter over a medium to high heat. Add onion and sauté until transparent. Include the pork and brown with onion. After you brown the pork, reduce heat to medium. Add the garlic, oregano, chives, pepper, and Chipotle. Cook for 5 minutes to mix flavors.

Now, you want to add the pinto beans, kidney beans, beef broth, stewed tomatoes, and tomato sauce. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 1 hour.

When serving, garnish with a tablespoon of cheese either Jack or cheddar.

Picnicking & Tailgating: Before heading out, heat on the stove or in a microwave. Place the chili in a thermos to keep hot. Wrap your shredded cheese in plastic bag and put into ice chest. When at the picnic or tailgate site, just serve and top with the cheese.

Makes 4 servings.
