Triple Meat Chili in a Rush

This is a quick chili for me since it only cooks in a little over 4 hours. Normally I like to put chili in a slow cooker for closer to 20 hours. Plus I used a lot of shortcuts on this one.

Take about 5 boneless pork chops, remove the fat, and cube. Take that and a “savory vegetable” frozen pack (veggie section of the grocery store), and throw them in a BIG skillet. While the pork starts to cook, cut up a smoked sausage (found in the lunch meat case – I used an Eckrich Smoked Sausage) and throw that in with the pork and savories. Finally, crumble in a pound of ground beef.

When the ground beef is close to cooked, pour the whole kit into a (BIG) slow cooker. To that add four cans of your favorite beans (2 dark kidney, 1 light kidney, 1 black beans this time – and RINSE them!), three cans of diced stewed tomatoes (one normal, one with chili peppers, one that pre-spiced for chili), one can of whole stewed tomatoes (mashed), and a small (8oz) can of tomato paste. Add about a teaspoon of salt, and ground black/red/white pepper to taste.

Cook on High for about 3-1/2 hours stirring every half hour or so, then finish in a 400 degree oven for 45 mins. Serve with sour cream, cheese, and tortilla chips.

The pre-spiced tomatoes tend to make it a little warm for Renee. You can cut that with some sugar into the chili. You might want to check the flavor before putting it into the oven.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
