This was FABULOUS and got very high reviews from my two teenage sons. I made it according to the recipe with the exception of omitting the cilantro (just plain ol' forgot to get some) and using regular chile powder (because I didn't have or shop for chipotle - I definitely plan on trying it with the chipotle) You truly can NOT go wrong with this recipe. I also plan on trying it with chicken.
Southwest Pork in Black Bean Sauce
For less spice, substitute a can of regular diced tomatoes for the mild diced tomatoes with green chiles.
