green chile tacos (or stew)

My husband wasn't in the mood for dinner until he tried a taco.  Then another.  He said it was sooo close to Hall of Fame that I'm going to go ahead and declare this dish Hall of Fame!  The pork was incredibly tender and the filling is extremely flavorful.  You can enjoy it as stew or in a taco.

green chili tacos (or stew) (idea from
2 1/2 pounds boneless pork loin, cubed
2 tablespoons peanut oil
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 (7 ounce) can fire roasted diced green chiles
4 cloves minced garlic
1 cup water
15 ounces green enchilada sauce (I recommend Las Palmas)

In a large pot over medium high heat, brown the pork in oil.  Add tomatoes, chile, garlic, water and enchilada sauce.  Cover and simmer until stew is thick and meat is very tender, about 1 1/2 hours.
