Green Chilie & Porkby Juanita
2# Green Chilie (roasted, peeled and seeded). (I do
my own, but you can get it frozen these days at the supermarket,
it comes in hot, medium and mild)
Mix the chilie, tomatoes, garlic and salt together. Add two cups of water.
I remove all fat from pork, dice it, then fry it till it is crisp like chitlings (we call them chicharones) remove all but 2 Tbls of fat, set chitlings aside.
Add the pork and cook till brown (now you can put the chitlings back in with pork unless you are watching your cholestrol!). Now, pour the chilie mixtture in with pork and simmer for 20 min or so.
I serve this with pinto beans that I have cooked with 2 slices of salt
pork . (You can use bacon if you like the smoked flavor)
If you come home some night and are weary and tired and you happen to have a pound of hamburger in the house, you can do the chilie recipe with hamburger instead of the pork and add onions and potatoes -- this takes about 1/2 hour and it is filling and doesn't dirty but one pot.
You can call this "Fireball Stew".
