Apple Cider Pork Chili

This apple cider pork chili is full of all of the flavors of fall and is perfect for any chilly day. Make it ahead of time and eat all week!

I have a confession to make. I have a soup addiction going on. Every single week for the last month or so, I have made a different soup. I made a soup Pinterest board and cannot stop finding great ideas or coming up with ideas on my own.

I love to make a huge pot and we eat it a few times through the week. I also like to share some with my dad who is the biggest soup fan and freeze a mason jar full for another time when we are short on time.
I was browsing Pinterest and saw the idea for apple cider in soup. I loved this idea! The apple cider gives this chili a sweeter flavor. The vegetables including kale, carrots, celery and onions give a boost of vitamins and minerals. The beans and pork provide protein which is what will help to make you feel full. This chili freezes well and is the perfect fall or cold-weather soup.
