Harry’s Pork and New Mexican Chile

This recipe is from my father-in-law Harry who has been enjoying New Mexican chile for over 75 years. Besides the hatch chiles, this recipe is a good way to use country style pork ribs when you see them on sale.

You’ll need:

2 lbs country style pork ribs trimmed of bone and fat, cut to bite sized pieces
2 medium potatoes diced
1 small or 1/2 medium onion, white or yellow chopped
4 oz can of chopped Hatch green chile or New Mexican chile you’ve prepared
1 can green enchilada sauce preferably Hatch
1/2 tsp each garlic powder and cumin
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
1 tbs olive or vegetable oil

In a large skillet over medium heat add oil and brown the pork, drain.  Add onions, cook to soften. Add hatch chili, enchilada sauce, potatoes and seasonings. Cover and simmer until pork is done and the potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes. Serve with warm tortillas and a salad or fresh fruit.
