So, this one isn’t a pot of chili but a casserole, which is still wonderful for this time of year. When the weather turns cold, I love to pull a hot, bubbly casserole out of the oven to serve for dinner. They’re hearty, satisfying, and so cozy.
Break out your crock pot or Insta pot to create this masterpiece of a meal! You might want to double the recipe so you have more for future meals throughout your week. It’s completely worth it, I promise!
By week one, I’m referring to the first week of our 30 Day Clean Eating Challenge, when we don’t eat beans. You can join some if you’d like, but I suggest trying the chili without the beans first because it’s delicious.

Pork tenderloins are often on sale around here, so this chili is great for staying in budget. But you won’t feel like you’re sacrificing anything because the flavors mesh perfectly. It makes a lot, so you can feed a big family, take it to a party, or use your leftovers as meal prep next week!
Easy, tasty, and super versatile, this chili might become your new best friend! It’s also fantastic for sneaking more veggies into your family’s diet. They won’t even realize it while enjoying the meal!
This chili isn’t only hearty and tasty but nourishing, too! Great northern beans are a good source of protein, iron, and folate that aids in the production of red blood cells. We’ve got a win-win here!
