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.
This was very easy and everyone loved it! I didn't use the cilantro or lime juice because we were out and I didn't realize that...still was good and a definate do over!
Great combo of tastes - simple and quick to make. The ancho and only one jalapeno didn't give it quite enough burn for me but that's easy to fix. The avacado, cilantro and lime are a must for granish. I'll definitely make this again.
