Introduction

This turned out to be a very hardy, vegetable rich soup/stew. Perfect for a cold winter's day! (I bought a can of pork thinking this would be a good way to store protein for emergency purposes. Found recipes at https://www.neighborsmn.org/wp-content/upl

Tips

The amount of chili powder in this recipe barely gives a tingle. So, if you like it a bit more spicy, add more chili powder or roasted Hatch green pepper.


Directions

Step 1:
For best results place can in refrigerator overnight to harden the fat. Open can. Remove visible fat. Drain excess juices if desired. Place pork in a large stockpot. Add broth, pinto beans, garlic, chili powder, and cumin. Bring to a boil.

Step 2:
Stir in carrots and potatoes and simmer until vegetables are crisp-tender.

Step 3:
Add celery, other canned vegetables, diced tomatoes, and pepper. Simmer for 8 10 minutes.
