Delicious traditional Mexican stew
|1 lb. pork
1 medium squash
1/2 can corn
1 small can tomato
1 bell pepper
1 tsp. chili powder
2 tsp. cumin
2 garlic cloves
salt and pepper
2-3 cups water
|Cook pork in a frying pan until brown. Use a little oil. When pork is cooked stir in the onion, bell pepper for a couple of minutes. Put meat mixture into a 4 1/2 qt. pot.
Next, add salt, pepper, cumin, garlic and squash. Add water.
Simmer for 20 minutes. Occasionally, stirring. Let stand for another 20-30 minutes. The cooking process will continue, steaming the vegetables.
You can use any squash for this Mexican stew. The Tatuma will cook firmer. Some prefer their squash to be very soft and fall apart. In that case, use zucchini or yellow squash. Serve with a corn or flour tortilla!
Fall is a great time to use fresh squash(calabaza).
This is a very forgiving recipe. Make it your own and enjoy!
