Cannellini Chili is one of our Fall and Winter favorite recipes. It smells so good cooking on the stove or in the crockpot. The perfect comfort food. Sometimes I prepare the recipe the night before, refrigerate it, and then the next day, pop it into the crockpot for about 4 hours on low. Happy to share this recipe with you! Enjoy!

How to Make BONNIE'S CANNELLINI CHILI

Step-by-Step

  1. Chop the meat put it in a large skillet with the olive oil over medium heat and saute until brown on both sides, set aside and put in the chopped vegetables and saute until half tender about 10 minutes then add the garlic, cook two minutes. Add the remaining dry seasonings and the salt and pepper, stir and cook for another minute.
  2. Add the tomatoes. Stir, and add the broth, stir again, cover and simmer until pork is tender. Add the drained and rinsed beans. To thicken: Whisk the cornstarch in about 1/4 cup of cold water until smooth and add to the soup, simmer another ten minutes, top with cilantro and cheese and serve.
  3. Cook's Tip: You can cook this in the crockpot after you have sauteed the vegetables and added the seasonings. Just transfer it to the crockpot and cook on low for 2 or 3 hours. If you use cooked leftover pork, just skip the meat browning step, and add the cooked pork to the vegetables after they have sauteed and stir it in.
