Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 2 lbs smoked pork chops
  • 20 oz tomatoes chopped
  • ¼ of a medium size white onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • 3 La Morena canned chipotles
  • Salt and pepper
  • Parsley and cilantro for garnish optional

Instructions

  • Cut the pork chops into bite-size cubes, about ¾-In. Heat oil in a large skillet and stir-fry the meat for about 6-8 minutes until golden brown.
  • While the meat if frying, place tomatoes, onion, garlic, La Morena canned chipotles and ½ cup of water in your blender. Process it until you have a very smooth salsa.
  • Once meat is golden brown, remove from the skillet and set aside. Drain any excess fat from the skillet and place back to medium-high heat and add the Chipotle salsa. Once it starts boiling reduce heat to simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Return the cubes of smoked pork chops to the skillet, season with salt and pepper, and keep simmering for about 6 more minutes. The salsa will reduce and the flavors will be well blended.

Serve with white rice and warm tortillas.

    Notes

    Some cooks like to prepare the pork chops whole, that is a personal choice.
    If you don’t want your stew too spicy, reduce the number of peppers.
