SPICY PORK STEW

1 lb pork tenderloin, cut into bite-size pieces
salt to taste
pepper to taste
1 tbsp canola oil
20 to 24-oz frozen mixed vegetables of your choice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 to 1/2 tsp (depending on taste) cajun seasoning
1 can (4 1/2-oz) diced green chiles
1 tsp cumin
1 cup water
fresh cilantro for garnish

In a Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat.  Lightly sprinkle the meat cubes with salt and pepper; add to the oil and cook 4 to 5 minutes until browned.  Stir in the vegetables-except for 1 cup you reserve, cajun seasoning,and cumin. 

Place the reserved vegetables, garlic, and green chiles into a blender container and blend until smooth; pour mixture into the Dutch oven.  Bring the stew to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes until the meat is done and the vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.

To serve, ladle into soup bowls and top each with a couple sprigs of the fresh cilantro.

Yield: 4 servings

Note:  Yummy served with crusty, lightly toasted bread.
