    One of my favorite dishes. Serve with Quick Spanish Rice and refried beans. My husband commented that this recipe isn't as "green" as some he gets in a Mexican restaurant. If you want more green, use tomatillos. I just happen to like this just the way it is!

      Very good. Not too spicy. Very flavorful. With rice and beans it made a great mexican style dinner!

      This was excellent! I used 1 red pepper, 1 medium jalapeno pepper and 1 cubanelle pepper (similar to a green pepper but lighter in color and milder in taste). I roasted the peppers, but didn't peel them. The roasting definitely enhanced the flavor, so I'm glad I did that. I used also a fattier cut of pork so that it wouldn't dry out, but next time, I'll have to do a better job of trimming the excess fat : ( Overall, I was pleased with the tenderness of the pork ~~ I cooked for about 50 minutes. As I made it, the dish was a bit on the spicy side, so next time I'll omit the jalapeno pepper. I served with Quick Spanish Rice and it was a delicious combo. Thanks for posting!

      This was very good. And very easy to put together. I used a yellow bell pepper and two Anaheim chilis for the chilies. That made the dish SO pretty! Lots of color there. I let it simmer until the pork was tender and the sauce was thickenened, then served it over plain steamed rice. Added lots of salt and pepper (personal preference) and about a tablespoon of dried cilantro. Yum! I'm having the leftovers for lunch today. I bet this would freeze well...
