I am posting this because I don't want to forget this!!! It used up the leftover pork roast and everyone liked it even better than the original meal...go figure. :) I made it again later with leftover pork tenderloin, too. It's great with corn tortillas or cornbread. Best of all it was quick and easy and my four year old spice-o-phobic liked it. The can sizes I guessed; they're just the standard size. This froze beautifully, too. And it is six GENEROUS servings.
- 2 cups leftover cooked pork
- 1 yellow onion, rough chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 (15 ounce) can cannellini beans, drained (save some liquid)
- 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained
- 1 (15 ounce) can Mexican-style tomatoes, chopped (I use scissors right in the can)
- 1 tablespoon chicken base (or a chicken bouillon cube.)
- 3⁄4 cup salsa verde (Trader Joe's makes a good one.)
- 1 1⁄2 cups frozen corn
- 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 2 tablespoons lime juice or 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- salt and pepper
- sour cream (optional)
- fresh cilantro (optional)
- chopped tomato (optional)
- olive (optional)
- cheese (optional)
- Saute onion in olive oil til soft and golden.
- Add beans, salsa verde, chicken base (I like "Better Than Bouillon"), and tomatoes to pan and simmer for about 20 minutes.
- Add corn, cilantro and pork and simmer til heated through and slightly thickened (about ten to fifteen minutes). Stir in lime or lemon juice.
- Eat up!
This is an excellent recipe! My family loved it and it offers a little different taste from the standard chili. A very nice way to use leftover pork roast. Thanks for the recipe. Carole in Orlando
This recipe is very easy with minimal prep required. DH made it today for our lunch using leftover pork loin. The cilantro garnish made the dish and we also topped with cheddar. Thanks for posting!
This became a family favorite the first time I prepared it using leftover Boston Butt. Quick and delicious. Can add a little Salsa to or in place of Mexican tomatoes for added heat.
