    HeatherFeather's Note:

    This is a great soup, so flavorful and so easy. Even though the avocado, lime juice and cilantro are "garnishes," the flavor of the lime and the cilantro especially is very key to the balance of flavors. This is good enough for company, really yummy. I think you probably could get away with using chicken meat in this too, although I tried this using the pork. Another find from the Robin Miller show, with my adjustments.

      We thought this was very good soup. I love that it goes in the crockpot. I went to three different stores looking for that ancho chili powder but couldn't find it anywhere. So I used regular chili pepper instead. And added a little bit of red pepper flakes. I thought it need a little bit more flavor so I added sirachi in mine. I don't know if it was because I didn't have that other chili powder. I also think that next time I will add a small can of hominy since it reminds me so much of pozole. I sent some to my sick neighbor and she loved it. She said she felt like she was eating a carnitas taco minus the lettuce. She asked for the reciepe. We did eat it with tostadas and I added a dollop of sour cream to every bowl. Thanks for the reciepe!

      I used leftover BBQed pork loin, yellow pepper, chili beans and simmered on the stove top. Was great!

      I have made this twice now (once while camping). It is very good. I like the way the flavors meld together. A wonderful hearty dinner. I did not use a crock pot, however. I browned the pork in a little bit of oil, then throw everything in & simmer for about an hour with 1 cup broth added instead of 5 as we prefer thicker stews.
