Pork and Green Chili Stew

 Pork and Green Chili Stew
Tender pork, green chilies and hominy have roots in Southwestern cuisine but help bring the heat to the Midwest for those long winter nights. An easily adaptable stew, it's ready in 4 hours if cooked on high in a slow cooker, or in 8 hours if cooked low and slow. —Paul Sedillo, Plainfield, Illinois
