A favorite for over 30 years in my house! I don't remember where I got the original, but I have altered it for the crock pot. For stove top, simply increase water to 2 cups.

Wonderful, flavorful chili! I don't care for onions so left them out and added an extra clove of garlic. This is already a healthy soup, but I lightened it up a bit more by replacing half of the pork with sliced zucchini. Hearty and great flavor - thanks for sharing the recipe!
