1 (2-pound) boned pork loin roast, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups coarsely chopped onion
6 garlic cloves, chopped
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup coarsely chopped seeded Anaheim chiles (about 3 chiles)
3/4 cup dried pinto beans
1 tablespoon chopped drained canned chipotle chile in adobo sauce
1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added stewed tomatoes, undrained
1 (10 1/2-ounce) can beef broth
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
1/2 cup chopped tomato
How to Make It
Trim fat from pork.
Heat oil in a 6-quart pressure cooker over medium heat. Add pork; sprinkle with chili powder, cumin, and salt. Sauté 5 minutes. Add onion and garlic; sauté 2 minutes. Stir in water, Anaheim chiles, beans, chipotle chile, stewed tomatoes, and broth. Close lid securely; bring to high pressure over high heat (about 3 minutes). Adjust heat to medium or level needed to maintain high pressure, and cook 40 minutes. Place pressure cooker under cold running water. Remove lid; skim fat from surface. Stir in cilantro. Ladle the soup into each of 8 bowls; top each serving with sour cream and chopped tomato.
Long-simmer stove-top rather than pressure cooker, added more liquid as needed. Couldn't get fresh Anaheim or Hatch chiles this time of year so subbed poblano (fire-charred, skinned, seeded). Used canned beans. Pretty good.
The flavor is wonderful - the only change I made to the recipe was I used 4 hatch chiles. However, it ran out of liquid before the time was finished. At 30 minutes it started to smell like it might be overcooking - and I was right. There was no liquid left, and it was very dark on the bottom - almost burnt. Unfortunately, that meant that the beans weren't quite cooked enough. I will definitely try this again, but will add a couple of extra cups of water.
This was really easy to make. The hardest part was reading all of the directions for my new pressure cooker ;-)
The meat was very tender. I also served it with rice, and added a little more chopped tomato than called for on top (but that's just b/c I love tomatoes).
An easy, tasty recipe - even for a pressure cooker newbie like me.
