I have been working on this recipe for a number of years now and it does tend to change now and then. I promise you that any changes I make to it only makes it better. Try it over bean and beef or breakfast burritos, chimichangas or just eat it as a stew with warm tortillas. I make a huge pot of this so I can freeze some for later. Can be transfered to the crock pot for all day simmering on low. Adjust chilies, jalapeños and spices, tasting as you cook. I have never measured before when making this so please let me know if something doesn't work. Take liberties with this recipe to suit your own tastes. I won't mind in the least. It is what I would do if this recipe was posted by you. Pork can be left out for our vegetarian friends. 2/21/13..I am raising 3 young grandsons (1-5) now and find time to be a premium commodity. Being a purist is not affordable at the moment. Try a large can of green enchilada sauce instead of tomatillos if you find yourself short of time and energy.

  • 2 -3 lbs pork roast (pre-diced pork works well for a faster preparation. just brown with onions)
  • 2 tablespoons bacon grease

  • 1 head minced garlic (taste great, but also helps prevent heart burn)
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • 1 (15 ounce) tomatoes, drained

  • 3 large tomatillos, husks removed and coarsely chopped (optional)
