  • Crock pot
  • Rice cooker


  • 28 oz can Muir Glen Organic Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes (1 can)
  • 28 oz can Diced Roma Tomatoes (1 can)
  • 2 pounds smoked wild pulled pork (can use any kind of pulled pork – wild pork is more lean / contains less fat)
  • 1.5 chopped red bell peppers
  • 1.5 large yellow onions
  • 2 chopped jalapeno peppers
  • 0.5 pound sweet mini peppers (half a package)
  • 0.5 cup chopped carrots
  • 3 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp Traeger Seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp dark chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 2 tsp. Oregano
  • 2 tsp. Ground black pepper
  • 3 cups rice (substitute riced cauliflower for a lower carb option)
  • 3 bags Fritos (skip to reduce carbs)
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 1 tub sour cream (can be "lite" sour cream)
  • 32 oz grated cheddar cheese (mild or sharp)


  • Chop and saute the onions.
  • Pour both cans of diced tomatoes into the crock pot.
  • Add minced garlic, chopped bell peppers, chopped mini-peppers, and chopped jalapeños.
  • Add all seasonings.
  • Stir well.
  • Cook on high 5 to 6 hours, then turn down to low or "warm" setting until ready to serve.
  • Cook 1 or 2 batches of rice (depending on the size of crowd you're feeding)
  • Finely chop cilantro.
  • Serve with Fritos, rice, sour cream, grated cheese, and cilantro.


You can substitute riced cauliflower for “regular rice” and skip the Fritos for a lower carb meal experience.
If you have more prep time, you can cook this 8-10 hours on low instead of 5-6 hours on high in the crock pot.
You can also add more bell peppers and/or jalapeño peppers as well, if desired.
I’ll add a link to my “Smoked Wild Hog” cooking video here soon! Check out my November 2021 video, “Smoked Pork Butt” and April 2021 video, “Overnight Pulled Pork with Memphis Style Slaw Sliders on the RecTeq RT-700” for more details on how to cook / prepare the pulled pork for this recipe. All my cooking videos (45 as of this date) are available in this YouTube playlist.
I have also prepared a variation of this chili with leftover beef brisket, and that’s also delicious!

Chili has been a long-time fall and winter favorite of our family! This chili variation, however, is “lean and green,” which means it’s very light on the carbohydrates and works well with our “5 and 1” meal plan! (My wife, Shelly Fryer, is my health coach and can share more about this diet / food plan and overall wellness program!)
