Hearty Pork Chili

Contributed by: News Canada

Keeping kids busy is key to a peaceful Spring Break (NC) - If you're home with the kids over Spring Break, you may be at the breaking point yourself if they have nothing to keep them busy. A fun activity for kids of all ages is learning to cook, an important skill that is often missing from regular school lessons.

Hearty Pork Chili
Make this delicious and simple Hearty Pork Chili from with your kids this week. Be sure to supervise at all times, and assign age-appropriate kitchen duties:

  • Most kids age 3-5 years can:

    • help get ingredients out of the fridge and utensils out of cupboards
    • stir ingredients together in a bowl
    • help set the table

  • Most kids between 6-8 years can:

    • squeeze garlic from a garlic press
    • measure ingredients like flour, spices or oil
    • begin to read and follow recipes

  • Most kids between 9-12 years can:

    • chop onions (with assistance) or grate cheese
    • open cans, rinse and drain contents
    • stir foods on the stove (with supervision)

Cooking Time: 2 3/4 hours


  • 3 lbs (1.5 kg) Ontario pork leg cubes, boneless, trimmed
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) all purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) vegetable oil
  • 4 large onions, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 can (4.5 oz./127 mL) mild green chilies, rinsed, drained, chopped
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) each ground cumin and dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each cayenne and pepper
  • 1 can (28 oz/796 mL) crushed plum tomatoes
  • 1 cup (250 mL) water
  • 2 cans (19 oz/540 mL) kidney beans, rinsed and drained


Pat pork dry and toss with flour. In a large deep skillet, heat oil over medium-heat. Brown pork in batches, removing each cooked batch from the pan.

Drain all but 1 tbsp (15 mL) fat from pan. Add onions and garlic; cook gently until tender, about 5 minutes. Add chilies, chili powder, cumin, oregano, cayenne, pepper, pork, tomatoes and water. Stir and bring to a boil. Simmer, uncovered 2 to 2 1/2 hours, until meat is very tender and mixture is thick. Stir in beans and heat thoroughly.

Serve over rice or in flour tortillas topped with chopped green onions and grated Cheddar cheese.
