A good chili has well-seasoned meat, creamy beans, and tender veggies. A great chili, however, has all that and comes together in one pot in under an hour. This chili is one of the greats. And once you take a bite, we can guarantee you’ll agree. Not to mention, these top-notch pork-ified bowls are adorned with some delicious fixings: smoky red pepper crema and sliced jalepeño. If you’ve got some on hand, why not sprinkle some crumbled tortilla chips on top for crunch?

• Wash and dry produce. • Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. Thinly slice half the jalapeño into rounds; mince remaining. (TIP: Remove ribs and seeds for less heat.) Dice tomato.
• Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add scallion whites and as much minced jalapeño as desired. Season with salt. Cook, stirring, until softened, 5-7 minutes.
• Add pork* and Southwest Spice to pot with aromatics; season with salt and pepper. Cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until pork is browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes.
• Stir diced tomato, Tex-Mex paste, and half the crushed tomatoes (all for 4 servings) into pot; cook until slightly darkened in color, 1-2 minutes. • Add beans and their liquid, stock concentrates, ¼ cup water (½ cup for 4 servings), salt, and pepper; stir to combine. Bring to a simmer and cook until thickened, 8-10 minutes. Turn off heat. (TIP: If chili is too thick, add another splash of water.) Taste and season with salt and pepper. • Divide chili between bowls. Top with smoky red pepper crema, scallion greens, and as much sliced jalapeño as you like. Serve.
