Mexican Pork Stew

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by crispychick

I found this out of Ladies Home Journal and thought it looked good so decided to try it. I'm glad I did, it was delicious and a big hit at Super Bowl party. I followed the recipe pretty much exactly except I added 3 cans of chicken broth instead of 1. I like my stews on the thin side.

This is very good. I made exactly except I didn't have black beans or corn. Next time I will have both and use as one reviewer states, use country style ribs.
