INGREDIENTS

  • 2 lbs. pork tenderloin, cut in 1” cubes or strips
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1 white onion, peeled and quartered
  • 3 green onions (scallions), 1/2 cup approximately
  • 2 serrano chiles (remove seeds and veins for a milder flavor)
  • 1 cup chopped cilantro
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 oz. bacon, small diced
  • 30 oz. cooked pinto beans, drained

COOKING DIRECTIONS

In a blender, combine 1/2 cup of stock, onions, scallions, chiles, cilantro, garlic, lime juice, oregano and cumin and mix until smooth and thick.
In a big pot large soup pot or Dutch oven, add the bacon and cook until golden in color. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate and set aside. Remove, and set aside.
Season the pork with salt and pepper to taste, and sear in the bacon fat for about 2 minutes. Sear pork in 2-3 batches so not to overcrowd. 2-3 batches for about 2 minutes. Add the sauce, bacon, and remaining 3 cups of stock and seared pork. Reduce temperature to low, cook covered until pork is tender, about 40 minutes.
Stir in the beans and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 10 minutes. Add salt to taste.
