Are you a fan of leftovers? You will be after you give this leftover pulled pork chili a try.
I made two pork tenderloins for dinner this week by slow cooking them in the crockpot. We used the meat to make shredded pork tacos loaded with toppings.
They were delicious. But we had lots of leftover pork. What’s a mom to do?
Shred it and make leftover pork tenderloin chili for an easy dinner!
This recipe works great on the stove or in a crockpot. And it couldn’t be easier to make. Just toss the leftover pork tenderloin into a stand mixer and set the control to one to shred the pork. Alternatively, shred the pork with two forks.
Then just add the pork and rest of the ingredients into a crockpot and let it simmer until done.
How to make Pulled Pork Chili
Use up that leftover pork tenderloin using an easy dump it and forget it recipe.
Shred the pork, add in your choice of beans, canned tomatoes and corn and sprinkle in some spices.
I love it when dinner comes together easily. I usually have one kid coming home from his activity while the other is headed out the door.
We don’t always get to sit down together as a family.
This pot of chili can stay warm until dinner time, whenever that may be.
The addition of corn, black beans and green chilies gives this chili a real authentic southwestern taste.
Serve it with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese and diced avocado.
