Crock Pot Pork Chop Chili

“Adapted from a recipe by Jen Santiago ( I needed a pot of chili to take to a Cook-Off, and had pork chops on hand. I tweaked Jen's recipe for pork chops with chili sauce, then I added tomatoes and kidney beans in the last 2 hours of cooking to make a pot of chili. Got great reviews from my friends!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lightly brown onions in oil.
  2. Add garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, water and ketchup.
  3. Simmer the sauce for 10 minutes.
  4. Arrange pork chops in crock pot, pour sauce over the chops.
  5. Cover and cook for 20 minutes on HIGH.
  6. Turn to LOW HEAT for 3 1/2 hours.
  7. Add beans and tomatoes. Cover and cook for another 1 1/2 hours, for a total of 5 hours cooking on LOW heat.
  8. The pork will fall off the bones. Remove bones and serve.
  9. If you're in a hurry, you can add the tomatoes and beans earlier and cut the total cooking time. In my crock pot, the pork is well-cooked at about 4 hours.
  10. Note: This is the kid-friendly not-very-spicy version. For extra heat, feel free to add more chili powder.
