Pork Chili - without beans.

January 17, 2022 • 0 comments

Chili is one of our family’s favorite meals. It does not take long to assemble the ingredients, but it does take a couple hours to simmer on the stove. Plan to cook it on a day that you will be around the house for 3-4 hours. You can make this chili with any ground meat, but I Iike the flavor ground pork adds. Remember that all ground meat is not created equal so get it from a source you can trust.
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:


  • (2 lbs) Ground Pork
  • (To Taste) Celtic Sea Salt
  • Large Onion
  • (One clove) Garlic
  • (3 - 5 Tablespoons depending on how spicy you like chili) Organic Chili Powder
  • (2 - 3 T) Organic Paprika
  • (6 oz can or 12 oz can of Tomato sauce) Tomato Paste
  • (2.5 T) Ground Cumin
  • (2 T) Avocado Oil
  • Water


Links to the organic seasonings we use can be found on this page on our website.

  1. Dice the onions and sauté in pan with avocado oil or good lard (I use the container that I cook the chili in to reduce cleanup).
  2. Add the garlic (minced garlic works too) once the onions start to soften up
  3. Add the thawed ground pork to the pan with onions and garlic, salt it to taste (You can add more salt later).
  4. As you brown the ground pork, slowly break it apart into smaller pieces.
  5. After the pork is browned, add chili powder, paprika, and tomato paste (or tomato sauce) and cover it all with water and stir it well.
  6. Reduce heat and let it simmer to thicken. Usually a couple hours.
  7. 20-30 minutes before you are ready to eat, add the ground cumin.
  8. Serve with a hard cheese (do not use processed cheeses, use a cheese like cheddar, colby, etc.), sour cream, avocado, etc.


  • I cook 5 batches of chili at once (i.e. 10 lbs of ground pork). It scales up easily and I can freeze it in pint or quart sized containers that my family can pull out of the freezer for a quick healthy meal.
  • I cannot eat beans, but I know people who have added beans to this chili recipe with great results.
