Feb 12: Breakfast; White (Pork) Chili

Breakfast

The Foodies don’t generally eat breakfast, preferring an early lunch and keeping food intake time slightly restricted, but about once a month we attend a hosted community breakfast, where we enjoyed a bacon and egg brioche.

Dinner

Foodie Greg like to find different ways to use our monthly delivery of ground pork. Tonight he adapted a chicken chili to ground pork (the other white meat) and it was pretty good. The recipe makes four good serves.

  • The ground pork was $8.35 or $2.09 per serve
  • Chicken broth is $1.99 or 50c per serve
  • White beans are 99c a can or 50c per serve
  • The jalapeño chili was 15c or 4c per serve
  • Add 10c per serve for onion and garlic
  • Frozen corn was $1.29 and we used half, or 16c per serve
  • Add 55c for seasoning, lime juice, labné and crushed tostadas.

Despite expecting the recipe to thicken with the blended beans, this was a very loose chili, with a texture more like soup! It has a fairly mild flavor, probably because we could only get one jalapeño and no poblano peppers. Quite enjoyable for $4.14 per serve.
