hello, slowcooker sunday! comfort food on a snowy, lazy sunday? sign me up.

and what’s great about this recipe is that you likely won’t need to run to the grocery store for the ingredients. i’m guessing you probably have everything you need right in your kitchen. you can prep the chili for the slowcooker and then smell the lovely slowcooker aroma while you curl up on the sofa with your fave book. now, how’s that for a pretty stellar snow day? :)

the pork:
– heat up 1.5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (evoo) in a large saucepan on high heat
– brown 1/2 white onion (peeled, rough chop) in pan
– add a dash of sea salt
– add 500g lean ground pork to onions
– sprinkle 1 tsp ancho chile spice
– lightly drizzle hot sauce
– season w/ ground black peppercorns
– sauté ground pork until browned, but not fully cooked
– remove from heat & set aside, while prepping other ingredients for the slowcooker

the beans:
– 1 can (approx 500mL) white kidney beans

(tip: best to drain canned beans in a colander under cold running water to remove any starchy residue.)
