green chili

i already put this one on myfamily, but it's still one of my favorites (we're having it tonight)

2 lbs pork, diced small (ground pork would work too, and be faster)
garlic salt
1 sm-med onion, diced small
1 26 oz can mild, roasted, peeled green chilis (look for hatch brand, or equilivant)--diced large
1 14.5 oz can diced, chili ready tomatoes (this adds the only heat, so if you really, really don't like heat, use 2-3 fresh, diced tomatoes or skip all together)
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried oregano
salt/pepper as needed

Brown pork (really brown, not just cooked through) in large pan (i like a wide skillet with a lid, if possible) in a little hot canola oil. use garlic salt to taste. add onion, saute til soft. add chilis with their juice, tomatoes, cumin, & oregano. cover and simmer 1/2--3 hours (long time is good, not necessary).

serve with beans, cheese, fresh tomato, avocado, cilantro, lime juice, corn, tortillas... fried eggs, in a burrito, over a baked potato, with a tostada, as a dip for corn chips, etc...
