Yield: Yields about 2 quarts
The moderately spicy chiles for this smoky pork and black-eyed pea chili were chosen for their flavor, not their heat, which means you can appreciate all of the flavors in the bowl.
This is delicious served with Classic Buttermilk Cornbread.

About how much sofrito does this make?
Hello there sweet thing; where have you been all of my life????? Truly special and an absolute keeper. Husband I had grown disenchanted with our go-to chili. Saw this recipe either on FB or in my e-mail inbox and knew I had to do something with the last of my plum tomatoes. The lovely local Latino store had the anchos, but not the New Mexico, so substituted gaujillos. Canned black eyed peas were used and sodium free broth. This takes time and it is well worth it. The bonus . . . El Salvadoran crema on top DROOL.
Great chili base! We love it with the pork and black-eyed peas as written, but have also made it using pintos, or used bison instead of pork, or half and half bison and pork, etc. It is very versatile, and makes a chili base with a nice depth of flavor and just enough heat. t makes a mean Frito pie as well!
