Pulled Pork Chili


Pulled Pork Chili

Used store-bought pulled pork to make this unique chili recipe. It's crazy easy and super tasty.

Pulled pork chili does not have to simmer for hours in the crock pot. This pulled pork chili recipe only takes 30 minutes to cook and tastes just as good. Made with store-bought pulled pork (easily found in the deli aisle of most grocery stores), this yummy chili recipe has a hearty taste without all that extra cook time. Chili is no longer an all-day affair with this hearty option.

From the Chef: The smoky barbecue taste of the pulled pork and the fire-roasted tomatoes makes this an ideal dish to make in the summer (or even just when you're craving that reminder of sunshine in the winter). Fresh bacon will add a smokier quality, but you can substitute for bacon bits if you wish.

I make barbeque pulled pork at least once a month for my family, and since we are only 3 people, I always have a lot of leftover meat. This is a great way to repurpose it later on in the week! This is so easy that my husband could even get this cooking on those days when I work late, and so hearty and delicious that he might offer to. Thanks Addie!
