    8 oz. fresh Anaheim chiles, roasted, or 7 oz. can of chopped mild green chiles
    1 1/2 pounds cooked pork tenderloin, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
    3 cups of chopped onion
    3 Tab. minced garlic ( I use the kind from the jar)
    1 LB. fresh tomatillos, husk peeled, chopped coarse
    1 tsp. ground cumin, or to taste (this was plenty for me)
    2 tsp. dried crushed oregano
    2 - 15 oz. cans low sodium chicken broth (4 cups)
    1 Tab. lime juice
    fat free sour cream, optional
    additional hot sauce, optional


Roast and peel peppers, if you are used to making your own, or buy pre-roasted in the jar. I used canned green chiles instead.

In a Dutch oven, spray bottom very well with cooking spray. Add the chopped onions and garlic. Cook over medium high heat, stirring often until onions are translucent. In the meantime, de-husk the tomatillas and chop coarse. Add to the pot. Cook about 5 minutes more.

Add rest of ingredients, stirring very well. Simmer at a low boil for 30 minutes to let the chili thicken a bit.

Serve with a tablespoon of lowfat or fat free sour cream. This recipe is very tangy and not too hot. Season with hot sauces to your level of comfort!
