Not an authentic green chili stew, but this is WONDERFUL and perfect for tailgate parties!!! I have made it several times since the original posting in 2008 and have discovered it's best served as a winter dish. It's great as is, but changed the recipe to suit the family's preference. 1.) Lightly dust the cubed pork (tenderloin) with 1/2 cup of flour, 1/2 tsp of onion powder, and 1/2 tsp of fresh ground garlic/ black pepper mixture before browning. 2.) Substitute the canned corn with fresh corn. Grill the ears and cut the kernels off - grilling brings out the natural sweetness in the corn (do this in the summer and freeze the corn in small baggies for use during the winter). 3.) Use 2 cans of green chiles and 1 small can of salsa verde in place of the 3rd can of green chilis. 4.) Add 2 thinly sliced carrots. 5.) Increase the cumin by 1/2 tsp for more flavor. 6.) If you have wood smoked, fire roasted tomatoes with garlic, it makes all the difference - if not, try no more than a drop of wood smoke seasoning to give a great flavor to it. Serve with sour cream, tortillas, or corn muffins! This is a WONDERFUL recipe!!! Try it, I guarantee you'll enjoy it....
