We don't mean the kind of chili you make with beans or the singer from TLC; we mean the slight heat added to the lime butter that brings this meal from fantastic to sublime. The succulent pork doesn't need the butter assist, but with every bite, the chili lime augments. Sweet butternut squash and juicy tomato round out a meal that's better than beans or R&B groups.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.
