For the beans:

5 cups water
5 cups chicken stock
2 teaspoons salt

For the chili:
1 each pork skin
¼ cup olive oil
¾ cup diced yellow onion
1 tablespoon minced garlic

1 tablespoon tomato paste
Pinch ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
1/3 teaspoon siracha sauce
2 ½ pounds pork loin

Method of Preparation:

1. To cook beans: combine water, chicken stock and salt in a medium
pot. Add beans and bring to a simmer. Cook until lightly tender but do
not overcook, beans will finish cooking when added to the chili. Drain
off stock and cool completely.
2. To prepare the chili: heat a large pot and brown pork loin. Add
all veggies and sauté until tender. Add pepper, cumin and tomato paste.
Deglaze with half of the stock. Reduce until thickened. It should
resemble a good marinara. Add remaining stock and beans and bring to a
simmer. Add salt and reduce until chili has some body (thickness,
consistency) taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Serve with corn bread muffins.
