    How many like green chili? I like both red and green prefer no beans but will eat them but you can keep the corn.

    Green chili is the hot stuff. Red is not so hot as a rule. I like mine a little more on the mild side.

    Try this

    1lb diced pork ( I use country style spare ribs)
    1 28 oz can whole tomatoes
    4 oz can chopped green chilis (or more)
    1/2 of 4 oz can diced jalapenos (I use fresh roasted jalapenos to taste)
    1 small onion diced
    1/2 tbsp onion powder

    Brown pork then drain grease. Mash tomatoes in large pot, mix in all ingredients. Add 3 cups water and salt to taste. Simmer 1 1/2 hour. Makes 1 quart

    TOMATOES in CHILI??????? No, no, no!!!!!

    You start anything with onion and lots of garlic, add three to four Tbs. of good Hatch chili powder, add some oregano and a good dose of cumin. Will make anything taste good. Pulled pork or beef and beans or not, and you have the makin's for some mightly good chili--but NO tomatoes.
