I used chicken instead of pork, because of what we had on hand. Will make this again and again changing meats and vegetables. A very versatile recipe.
I've prepared this recipe twice. I tweaked it a bit by substituting red potatoes for the squash. I think sweet potatoes would be great too, it's just that I love red potatoes. I cut the pork into smaller pieces, thickened the sauce to return it to more of a stew, used fresh chilis, and used "no salt added" diced tomatoes. This is a really good looking dish, very tasty and healthy.
This soup has great flavor and is super easy. I doubled the recipe, but only used 1 can of tomatoes with the chilies and it still had a nice kick.
Delicious & I made some corn bread to put in the soup!!! Yum :)
I made this recipe using less chili powder and cumin and added a drained and rinsed (low sodium) can of black beans the last hour of cooking. Will be making this again.
