Succulent shredded pork, fire roasted tomatoes and fiber rich black beans are the key ingredients in this southwestern stew.

But the secret is a jar of green salsa verde. It adds a punch of heat and flavor that’s reminiscent of true authentic Mexican and Texas cuisine.

It’s cold in Ohio and I am always on the lookout for new stew and soup recipes to keep warm.

You’ll never find me in the canned soup aisle of the grocery store because whipping up homemade it’s just so simple and so much better for you.

This Tex-Mex Pork Stew couldn’t be easier. It’s the perfect dinner and also a great stew to serve on game day. It’s hearty and keeps you satisfied.

I usually prefer to cook up the pork tenderloin ahead of time. It’s a go-to protein source in my house so when I’m making a pork tenderloin I usually make more than one.

Many times pork tenderloin comes two to a pack. Use one for the stew.

Here’s an easy recipe for the other pork tenderloin. I promise it’s a favorite the entire family will devour.

With that said, this recipe is as easy as throwing everything in a pot, getting it hot and serving.

Be sure to check out some of my other soup recipes including my Harvest Potato Corn ChowderGobble-Good Roasted Turkey & Rice Soup and Beef Barley Soup with Filet Mignon.

These are easy to make and are a delicious way to stay warm this winter. Hearty, full of veggies and just good for you!
