Pork & Black Bean Chili
with Spicy Crema & Monterey Jack Cheese
A good chili has well-seasoned meat, creamy beans, and tender vegetables. 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 porky bowls are adorned with some delicious fixings: tangy hot sauce crema and melty Monterey Jack. If you’ve got some on hand, why not crumble up some tortilla chips and sprinkle them on top for a crunch?

• Wash and dry produce. • Halve, peel, and dice onion. Thinly slice half the jalapeño into rounds; mince remaining jalapeño. TIP: Remove ribs and seeds first for less heat.

• Add pork*, Mexican Spice, Southwest Spice, salt, and pepper to pot. Cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes.
• Stir tomato paste into pot with pork mixture. Cook, stirring, until dark red and combined, 1-2 minutes. • Add diced tomatoes, beans and their liquid, stock concentrate, ¼ cup water, salt, and pepper; stir to combine. Bring to a simmer and cook, uncovered, until thickened, 8-10 minutes. • Turn off heat. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
• While chili cooks, in a small bowl, combine sour cream with hot sauce to taste; season with salt and pepper. Stir in water 1 tsp at a time until mixture reaches a drizzling consistency.
