White Chili with Carnitas

I thought I'd try making my white chili with a twist recently. I substituted the chicken that I usually used with pork, slow cooked with fresh chilies. It's my new favorite, and got some great reviews from family and friends.

Serves:

10-12

Prep:

8 Hr

Cook:

2 Hr 30 Min

Ingredients

4-5 lb
pork roast
3-4
anaheim chilis
6
dried ancho chilis
5 pinch
kosher salt
6 pinch
black pepper
2 tsp
garlic powder
3 can(s)
great northern beans
1 can(s)
black beans
1 qt
chicken stock
1/2 c
white onions
1 bunch
green onion
2 pinch
cayenne pepper
1/2 c
water
1 bunch
fresh cilantro

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place pork roast in slow cooker/crock pot with white onion, anaheim chilis sliced into chunks, half the dried ancho (ground), 3 pinches of kosher salt, 3 pinches of black pepper, 1 tsp of garlic powder, water. Cook on low heat setting for 6-8 hours. For a little more heat include seeds etc from anaheim chilis.
2
Remove pork from slow cooker/crock pot and let cool. Take remaining stock from slow cooker and place in large kettle/stock pot. Add chicken stock, all beans (drained and rinsed), remaining ancho chili (diced), 2 pinches of kosher salt, 3 pinches of black pepper, 1 tsp of garlic powder, a tbs of chopped fresh cilantro and cayenne pepper. Bring to a boil. I add a little additional white onion at this step also (approximately another 1/4 to 1/2 cup).
3
Shred pork (Pork should shred easily with a spatula etc.)
4
Lower heat on stock pot and allow to simmer. Add shredded pork (carnitas) to desired consistency. More pork makes a heartier chili.
Simmer for 2-3 hours.
5
After simmering, serve. Best if garnished with a dollup of sour cream, diced green onion and/or fresh cilantro, shredded colby jack cheese and tortilla chips.
6
If there is left over pork, refrigerate and save to serve for another meal. Make burritos, tacos, etc with it. It's delicious!
