The Thing I made on Sunday was Pork Chili. This is a picture of the garlic, onions and jalapeÃ±os. The recipe is called Tierra Verde Chili, and contains no beans, which I have been told is the authentic way to make chili although I can find no evidence of this in a cursory search online.
Here's the Tierra Verde recipe in case you want to follow along yourself. It's quite good, and goes really well over a baked potato with some cheese.
2lbs pork loin, thin 2 cups water 2 tbsp olive oil 2 large onions chopped 4 large garlic cloves minced 4 large jalapenos, stemmed seeded and diced 4 4-oz cans green chilis, diced 1 14.5-oz can stewed tomatoes, mexican style 1 tbsp oregano 2 tsp ground cumin pork in pan, cover with water, bring to boil, reduce heat, simmer until meat is thoroughly cooked through separate meat and broth, put meat on a plate, put broth into a 2-cup measuring cup skim fat from broth heat olive oil in a pot, saute onions, garlic and jalapeÃ±os (cook veggies with olive oil) add cubed pork, green chiles, broth, stewed tomates (w/ their liquid) + the seasonings, pepper to taste, bring to boil, simmer 2 to 3 hours for mixture to thicken
