Green Chili Pork Stew

This warm and inviting stew is perfect for chilly autumn evenings. The recipe goes together in a snap with diced pork tenderloin and frozen vegetable mixes. If your family does not care for the flavor of cilantro, chopped parsley makes a fine stand-in.

    Lime wedges (optional)

Cut pork into 3/4-inch pieces; sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. In a Dutch oven heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add pork; cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until browned. Stir in two packages of the thawed vegetables, the chiles, and the cumin.
In a blender combine remaining thawed vegetables and the water. Process until smooth. Add pureed vegetables to Dutch oven. Bring to a simmer. Cook, covered, over medium heat about 15 minutes or until pork is cooked through, stirring occasionally. Ladle into soup bowls. Top with cilantro and a squeeze of lime juice.
  • *Tip: If you can't find the frozen vegetable blend, in a medium bowl stir together one 15-ounce can navy beans, rinsed and drained; 1 cup frozen sliced carrots, thawed; half of a 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well-drained; and 1/4 cup Italian vinaigrette salad dressing. Stir 2 cups of the mixture into the pork with the chiles and cumin, and blend the remaining 1 cup with the water. Continue as directed.
