Not bad! Both my hubs and I really enjoyed this, although the heat factor was a bit of an issue for me.... I like spicy food, but this was WICKED spicy lol! NOTE TO SELF: ONLY USE 1 JALAPENO NEXT TIME (or remove the seeds from one of them to cut some of the spice)!!!!! I usually follow the submitter's cooking / preparation directions to the letter (unless they seem contradictory, erroneous or I feel I can improve or streamline the process), but will often times make ingredient substitutions to suit my tastes. This time, not only did I make a few personal adjustments, I also altered the cooking method - and I wish I wouldn't have.... :( As wifeyluvs2cook did, I simmered my pork (to tenderize it) before proceeding with the recipe as directed. I'm not sure where I went wrong, but my pork ended up VERY tough. I am a fan of wifey's recipes and her cooking style, but this time her advice didn't work for me. I STRONGLY suggest that you follow Amy's directions, at least initially. You can always make changes next time. Having said this, wifey's suggestion to add a pinch of garlic powder / oregano was spot on (both added great flavor, IMHO). her suggestion to substitute fresh tomatoes, tomato sauce and water also worked well, so if you don't have canned tomatoes, don't sweat it. Steamed rice, refried beans and corn tortillas completed our meal. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Amy! I can't wait to make this again, albeit after my mouth cools off a bit haha! :-)
