Recipe by Irene the novice
This is a very spicy oh so delicious mexican pork stew. Serve with rice and plenty of flour tortillas. I like to use the tortillas as my eating utensil ( authentic mexican way to eat this) just break off pieces of tortilla and use a piece held kind of cup like between your fingers to scoop up the chili/rice using a piece in the other hand to help push it on to the piece to be eaten.
