The Lord's Day & Pork Chili~

I am up bright and early to make Sunday Dinner for after church this morning. I am up with good intentions but the longer I am up the more queasy I feel. The normal flu~ according to the Media~and who pays attention to them anymore~ is to hit in January. Unfortunately almost everyone close to us has had it in their household this past week. I use antibacterial stuff on my hands constantly while I am out and about and I wash my hands so many times in a day but I think I might be getting sick~yeck! Mind over matter~I am going to sip some tea !

Anyways~ I am up making pork chili. Not so good~while not feeling well but it is on the menu for today. I already took the meat out of the freezer. I buy pork tenderloins when they are on sale and My Brian cuts them up for me. I get boneless pork chops, pork roast, pulled pork sandwiches and stew size meat for pork chili~ all for whatever the sale is per pound. Last time for 99 cents per pound. It is so much cheaper this way! You can't buy boneless pork chops for that price any where. So I always have some in my freezer. It is a huge money saver.

Here is our one of the Shindorf Favorites~

Mexican Pork Chili


  • 2 to 2 1/2 pounds pork loin or lean pork shoulder, cut in 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large can (28 oz) diced tomatoes in juice
  • 1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
  • 1 can of Retell type tomatoes with the hot peppers
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 small bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • minced jalapeno or other hot chili pepper, to taste (optional)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon cumin


In a large skillet, brown pork cubes in hot oil over medium heat. Drain. Place pork in crockpot; add remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. Serve with flour tortillas~ and a side of Spanish Rice~YUM!!
Serves 4-6.

Sometimes I add chili beans ~sometimes not. I also add different things in it according to my taste buds that day and what I have on hand.

Well I am going to make some Stash Tea~my favorite but honestly I think I might need to call for a replacement to teach my Sunday School Class!

I pray you have a wonderful Lord's Day and remember it is the Lord's Day all day!
