This hearty pork dish gets a little kick from ground cumin, chipotle chili and diced tomatoes with green chilies.
Updated Dec 10, 2009

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 2 medium onions, cut in half, then cut into 1/4-inch slices and slices separated
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 pounds pork boneless loin roast, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 chipotle chili in adobo sauce, finely chopped, plus 1 teaspoon adobo sauce (from 7- to 11-ounce can)
  • 3 cans (14.5 ounces each) diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oil in 4 1/2- to 5-quart Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Cook onions and garlic in oil 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are softened.
  • 2
    Stir in salt, cumin, pepper and pork. Cook 6 to 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until pork is lightly browned.
  • 3
    Stir in chipotle chili, adobo sauce and tomatoes. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook 35 to 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pork is no longer pink in center.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Warm flour tortillas make great dippers for this rich, smoky chili. A fresh vegetable plate of carrot, jicama and cucumber sticks and a creamy dip make a cooling side dish.
  • tip 2
    Laced with chipotle chilies for smoky kicks, this chili begs for a topper of sour cream and a few slices of fresh avocado.
  • tip 3
    Chipotle chilies are dried smoked jalapeño chilies. They can be purchased dried, pickled or in adobo sauce.
