This chili is easy enough to put together in the morning. Then, while you’re at work, your slow cooker will also be hard at work, infusing flavors into your pork roast. You’ll walk into an cozy-smelling kitchen and a savory bowl of keto-friendly chili.

How To Prepare Your Pork For Chili

Slow Cooker

Start preparing the pork by patting it dry and seasoning it liberally with salt and pepper.

Next, poke small slits on all sides of the pork to let the juices meld between the pork and the chili sauce. This not only adds more flavor to your pork loin, but also to your sauce.

Helpful Tips To Get You Started:

  • Don’t peek. I know you’re curious about what’s going on in there but resist the urge to lift the lid until the cooking time is done. Letting out all that steam also means letting out a lot of moisture.
  • Serve the avocado crema fresh. The avocado crema is best served freshly blended, so wait until just before you serve the chili to make it. If you do need to make it ahead of time, double the lime so the avocado doesn’t brown.
