Calabacita con Puerco

Calabacita con Puerco created by Susan Buentello

Calabacita is a classic Tex-Mex dish that is slightly different everywhere you find it. This is my version.

ingredients

directions

  • Heat shortening in Dutch oven; fry pork cubes in batches until browned.
  • Return all pork to pan.
  • Place chilies and onion in food processor container and process until chopped (or chop together by hand).
  • Slice garlic and place with cominos and salt in a mortar and pestle and grind together.
  • (The garlic and cominos and salt can be chopped in the food processor with the chilies and onion, but grinding it gives it more flavor).
  • Add all vegetables to pan with pork and cook over high heat until onion is transparent.
  • Sprinkle flour over pork and vegetables and stir to combine.
  • Cook a few minutes to remove the raw taste of the flour.
  • Add all remaining ingredients plus about 1 tomato can of water--enough so that pork and vegetables are not quite covered with liquid.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover with a lid.
  • Cook at a simmer for about 2 hours, stirring occasionally, checking periodically and adding more water if necessary.

    Good recipe. A little too much comino and surprised that it had corn in it, but overall a good recipe. Thanks Susan!
