  • Stir the onions and garlic into the skillet, and cook in the pork juices over medium heat until tender. Mix in the mushrooms, wax beans, peas, green bell pepper, and red bell pepper. Cook and stir until tender and heated through.

  • Return the pork to the skillet. Mix in the tomato sauce. Season with chili powder, nutmeg, marjoram, and salt. Reduce heat, and simmer about 45 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.

Excellent recipe. A keeper! I substituted cannned peas for frozen ones and the tomato sauce with a can of diced tomatoes. I added 4 tbsp chili powder and more garlic. Because I cooked the pork in the micro-wave I didn't add the olive oil. Read More

Very Different type of Chili. It was alright - will probably make a spicier chili-like chili next time. Read More

I had a jar of red peppers in tomato sauce that I used instead of the red pepper and can of tomato sauce. My dish turned out a little dry as I didn't have "enough" tomato sauce. Hubby loved this dish. (Didn't add the nutmeg either as I wasn't sure I had any and too lazy to look! LOL) Read More

3 1/2 stars. Husband thought there was 'too much going on' in the chili but I liked that there were a lot of vegetables. I added a lot of the spices because without them I don't think there would have been a lot of flavor. Read More

Great new version of chili. Sometimes I opt for lean ground turkey in place of other ground meats. I also use black beans for a nice change. Read More
