Ancho Pork and Peppers

    This was simple and really, really delicious. Made my own ancho chili powder for a fraction of the cost of a bottle simply by grinding a dried ancho (buy in big bags in Mexican food section) with cumin and corriander seeds and a dash of garlic salt and I used a bit more than the recipe suggests because we like stronger flavors. Put the peppers & onions in with the pork after I turned the chops, saving a pan and melding flavors. Used juice of a whole lime drizzled over all. Served with corn on the cob and some sliced jicama. Using calorie king, I do come up with 308 per serving though, and the extra lime juice doesn't add that much! So I wonder if the calorie count given in the mag/website is too low?
