    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    This is warming, delicious, doesn't really take a whole lot of effort, and it smells wonderful while it's cooking! Use pure ground ancho chile powder and serve over rice.

      Excellent! I could not find Ancho chili powder so I chopped 3 dried Ancho peppers in my Cuisinart minichopper and added a touch of regular chili powder with very good results. I served this with homemade tortillas. Better than the taqueria!!

      Now my face is red but it turned out heavenly. Son't ask how but I read Ancho as Adobo and merrily added 1 1/2 tsp Adobo to your recipe then realized my mistake and added 1 tsp Ancho the result is wonderful. Following your recipe the end result is lovely tender pork that is perfect with rice. I added some leftover veggies chopped and used fresh frozen chopped cilantro. Excellent dinner Thanks EdsGirl Angie for a winner
