Red Pork Chili is a rich and delicious meat sauce that you can serve on rice, biscuits, or in this case, spooned over a heap of decadent cheese grits.

There are so many ways you can serve this. With one taste, your imagination will run wild!

  • Top with a sprinkle of fresh lime zest (about 1 teaspoon for each bowl.)
  • Enjoy!

Notes

Try serving this pork over biscuits or chunks of cornbread. It is amazing in a panini. It may also be good served with rice and wrapped in a tortilla. You can use your imagination!
FOR PALEO – serve this on a bed of riced cauliflower or in a paleo friendly wrap, such as Siete brand. (I find them at my local Whole Foods.)

Note: I no longer eat pork, however I am leaving recipes like this one up for those who enjoy it. Many pork recipes can be easily converted to turkey or chicken recipes, with little or even no other changes. Recipes with bacon or sausage can use alternatives like beef or turkey bacon. Many of those recipes are being updated with the changes. Article: Why I Quit Eating Pork
