Pork Mixed Bean Chili

"I am posting this because I don't want to forget this!!! It used up the leftover pork roast and everyone liked it even better than the original meal...go figure. :) I made it again later with leftover pork tenderloin, too. It's great with corn tortillas or cornbread. Best of all it was quick and easy and my four year old spice-o-phobic liked it. The can sizes I guessed; they're just the standard size. This froze beautifully, too. And it is six GENEROUS servings."

    This recipe was a HUGE hit with our family. Even my picky eater loved it. The adults mixed tapatio sauce into their bowls to spice it up. The kids mixed cheddar and sour cream into their bowls.

    This is an excellent recipe! My family loved it and it offers a little different taste from the standard chili. A very nice way to use leftover pork roast. Thanks for the recipe. Carole in Orlando

    This recipe is very easy with minimal prep required. DH made it today for our lunch using leftover pork loin. The cilantro garnish made the dish and we also topped with cheddar. Thanks for posting!

    This became a family favorite the first time I prepared it using leftover Boston Butt. Quick and delicious. Can add a little Salsa to or in place of Mexican tomatoes for added heat.

    Great tasting pork soup! It had a nice bite to it with the salsa verde. Just realized I forgot the lime/lemon juice, but was still tasty. Served with cornbread. Good use for the leftover pork in the freezer.

If I weren't a teacher, I'd be a chef. I love to cook, grew up cooking, had a fireman chef for a dad, and have spent most of my free time with cookbooks, food, entertaining, classes, study, and luckily I'm in one of the best food areas in the world! But...teaching is the absolute best job in the world. Don't tell anyone, but it's more like fun and you never get bored. My pet peeve is when people spell DEFINITELY wrong. I DEFINITELY don't want to read more reviews with DEFINITELY spelled wrong. But hey, I'm an English teacher :). My other pet peeve, food-wise, is "cream of whatever" soup. I think my mom OD'd us all on it when I was growing up. My biggest challenge in cooking was trying to learn FAST food. At an "older" age, I married, had a baby and have had to learn a new way to cook! No more leisurely hours to fix dinner for friends or an hour to put something together for me....! My daughter is seven now, opinionated, and it's a real challenge. Luckily she likes almost everything. And so does my sweetie. I loved seeing her horrified face at her first abalone fresh from the ocean (my husband dives for them occasionally...oh man, nothing better...) But she ate them and then slurped down some oysters!!! <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a254/Sharon123/NZT-2-AnnaciasZaarTagbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Annacia's banner for Zaar Tag">
