Servings 6 people


  • 1 lb boneless pork chops cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup green chile peeled and chopped
  • 4 small potatoes peeled
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cups chicken broth


  1. Cut pork chops into bite-size pieces.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, salt, ground cumin, and pepper. Add pork to the bowl and mix to coat pork pieces.

  3. Peel and dice onion. Peel and mince garlic. Peel and dice green chile. Peel and cube potatoes.

  4. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onions and saute until translucent, about 4 minutes. Add in garlic and saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add in pork and continue cooking until pork starts to brown.

  5. Add chicken broth, scraping the bottom of the pan to get all of the brown bits. Add in green chile and potatoes.

  6. Simmer about 30 minutes, until pork is cooked through and potatoes are tender (but not falling apart). Season with salt, pepper, and cumin, to taste.
