Cajun Pork Chili

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground pork
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 sweet red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 sweet green bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 (28 ounce) can tomatoes
  • 1 (28 ounce) can kidney beans, drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Dash of hot pepper sauce
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. In a heavy saucepan, cook the pork over medium heat, stirring to break up the meat, for about 5 minutes or until browned. Pour off the fat.
  2. Add onions, and cook until tender.
  3. Add garlic, red and green peppers and celery. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until vegetables are softened.
  4. Add tomatoes, breaking them up with the back of a spoon.
  5. Stir in kidney beans, hot pepper flakes, oregano, cayenne pepper, hot pepper sauce and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.

If you prefer a more traditional chili flavor, use cumin instead of oregano, and add chili powder to taste.
