    Susan Buentello's Note:

    Calabacita is a classic Tex-Mex dish that is slightly different everywhere you find it. This is my version.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat shortening in Dutch oven; fry pork cubes in batches until browned.
    2. 2
      Return all pork to pan.
    3. 3
      Place chilies and onion in food processor container and process until chopped (or chop together by hand).
    4. 4
      Slice garlic and place with cominos and salt in a mortar and pestle and grind together.
    5. 5
      (The garlic and cominos and salt can be chopped in the food processor with the chilies and onion, but grinding it gives it more flavor).
    6. 6
      Add all vegetables to pan with pork and cook over high heat until onion is transparent.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle flour over pork and vegetables and stir to combine.
    8. 8
      Cook a few minutes to remove the raw taste of the flour.
    9. 9
      Add all remaining ingredients plus about 1 tomato can of water--enough so that pork and vegetables are not quite covered with liquid.
    10. 10
      Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover with a lid.
    11. 11
      Cook at a simmer for about 2 hours, stirring occasionally, checking periodically and adding more water if necessary.

      Good recipe. A little too much comino and surprised that it had corn in it, but overall a good recipe. Thanks Susan!
