Pork Guisada - Stewed Pork Burrito Filling Notes

Another one of my slow cooked recipes meant to fill your home with great cooking scents on those cold winter afternoons in Chicago! Like many of my Tex-Mex recipes, this one calls for chocolate, which is a very authentic southwestern spice so don’t be afraid – it adds a unique and surprising flavor you won’t expect!

Helpful Hints

Look for “Stew Pork” at your meat counter. It is just as good as Pork Loin for this and is sometimes a little cheaper in price

Note that this recipe works equally well with Beef or Chicken

You can dial up the heat by replacing some or all of the Smoked Paprika with Chipotle Powder, or some of the Poblano chilies with Jalapenos if you wish
