Perfect après-ski meal anyone? A chili of course!! This one has a little twist though, it’s made with lean ground pork (instead of the more traditional beef) and…mango salsa!
Even if it may not sound like it at first, it truly is a match made in heaven. The mango taste is subtle but it gives this chili just the right amount of sweetness and tanginess! It’s rich, hearty, comforting and well…absolutely perfect after a day outside playing in the snow!
You can serve it with warm bread rolls on the side or inside hollowed-out bread buns, with rice, quinoa or even on cooked spaghetti squash. It’s all good!
