Game Day Pork & Bacon Chili at Home

Course Main Dish


  • 1 1/2 lb pork loin roast cut into 3/4 inch dice
  • 8 oz Bacon thick-cut, 5 slices, cut into 1/4 inch strips
  • 1 Onion cut into 1/2 inch dice
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 29 oz roasted tomatoes diced
  • 30 oz cannellini beans
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 Scallions


  • In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon, stirring occasionally, until crisp, 9-10 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate and set aside.
  • Add the onion to the bacon fat and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high, add the pork, and cook, stirring occasionally until the onions are tender, 6-8 minutes. Mix in the chili powder and paprika.
  • Transfer onion and pork mixture to the slow cooker. Add the bacon. Stir in the tomatoes (with juices). Stir in the beans. Cook on high for 1 hour or on low for 3 hours. Serve the chili with sour cream and scallions.
