Chili Colorado

Rated as 4.46 out of 5 Stars

"This is a rich, mild chili and pork stew. It is one of my favorite things, which I like to eat from a bowl with plenty of saltine crackers and a salad on the side. It's also good served over rice or chili beans."

  1. Place 3 tablespoons flour in a plastic bag. Add pork and shake to lightly coat with flour. Set aside.
  2. Heat bacon drippings and vegetable oil in a Dutch oven over medium high heat. Add pork and cook until meat is evenly browned, about 5 to 8 minutes. Stir in 1 tablespoon flour, and cook 3 minutes. Stir in the onion, tomato sauce, chile powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium low and simmer until pork is just falling apart, about 1-1/2 to 2 hours.

I really enjoyed the concept of this recipe. I started out following the instructions 100%, but as time passed and the flavors began to meld, I updated it a bit. That's not to detract anything...

Very easy, and good flavor. I made the mistake of adding a bit more water due to other reveiw stating not enough sauce, well mine was too thin. Had to thicken at the end but still turned out g...
