Add 1 Tomato Bouillon with chicken flavor (Knorr Brand Mexican aisle)

Then cover and turn to low for 30 minutes. (most of the water should already be gone, only enough left to steam the rice the rest of the way)
This is for a smaller batch (which is really one big pot)
1 package of pork carnitas (Winco should have this type of pork)
2 large cans of homony
3 cloves of garlic
1/2 a cap of chicken boullion
10-14 oz of Hot New Mexico Chili pods
soak the New Mexico Chili Pods in water over night
My father-in-law boils the pork the night before if he wants to have it ready early in the morning, and just put the pork in one dish in the fridge and keep the meat water in the pot in the fridge for the next day.
The day you want to eat:
*boil the meat for 3 hours with the coves of garlic.
*After the meat is cooked, take it out and let it cool. Keep the meat water, and fish out all the floaties. This meat water will be used later on.
*Because you soaked the chili pods, you take them out of the water, cut off the heads of them, and throw them in a blender with some of the meat water. I usually just use a glass to put the meat water into the blender with the chili pods.
*blend the chili pods until it gets liduidy.
*Next take a fine strainer so that the chili seeds can't get through it, and strain the blended chili's. Your purpose here is to get the chili pods grounded up enough to make the meat water spicey and red without getting the seeds into the pisole and without chunks. (This is where pretty much all the flavor comes from). Do this to all of your chili pods. I strain all the chilis into a bowl because I don't want to put this chili water into my big pot yet because I am still using that beef water to strain all the other chilis.
*After all the chilis are blended and strained, with a glass, start putting the chili water into the pot with the other beef water. Put in as much as you like to get it the spiciness you want. After all your pot of water is red from the chili's, add your homony. Let this boil for about half an hour.
*While this is boiling, start breaking apart your pork. The trick is to break it off in bigger chunks (not super big, but bigger than you would take a bite of) because once your homony is cooked, you add the pork and the chicken boullion and simmer for another half an hour. While this is simmering, your pork will shred a little bit and fall apart even more.
Wow, Lisa, these look wonderful and I sure needed something new to make! I have been making the same stuff over and over and I am ready for a change!
Thank you for sharing these.
Lisa, thanks for taking the time to post the recipes
Thanks Lisa they look great!!!
Lisa, thanks for the recipes. Will try the crockpot chicken tomorrow. Also the shopping list came across perfect, no changes necessary. My 2nd week weight-in, down 4.5 lbs. Last week was 8.4. Sure don't want to lose this momentum.
Wow Jacque that is so awesome. Great job you must be following the plan. Any tips for me?
