This pork chili soup recipe was delicious. I just made it for dinner tonight, and it was a big hit.
2 tsp Olive Oil
1 lb fresh, lean ground pork
1 onion finely chopped
1 celery salk, finely chopped
1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and finely chopped
1 pablano pepper, cored, seeded, and chopped
2-3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
6 oz can tomato paste
14 oz can diced tomatoes
2 14 oz cans chicken, or other meat stock
1 tsp corriander
1-2 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp mild chili powder, or to taste
salt & pepper
fresh cilantro to garnish
sour cream to serve
Heat oil in a large sauce pan over med. high heat. Add pork and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the pork is no longer pink, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to med. and add the onion, celery, red bell pepper, pablano pepper, and garlic. Cover pot and continue to cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened.
