Pork/Green Chili and Chipolte Rice Recipes

I'm posting these two recipes here so that I don't have to dig for them every time I want to make these.

Pork and Green Chili (recipe from Jeri A.)

1). Cube pork (about 1 lb), tossed with 1 Cup seasoned flour and then browned in oil.
2). Add 16 oz. salsa and 4 cups water (sometimes I used Rotel or spicy diced tomatoes).
3). Mix in 1 doz. chopped chili peppers (I use fresh from the garden or peppers that I've frozen).
4). Add fresh garlic, salt, oregano, cumin -to taste- and a pinch of sugar, flour to thicken, and
1 small can of jalapenos if desired.

I often add pinto beans to make this a soup meal.

Simmer 3-4 hours until pork is tender.

Chipolte Rice (recipe from Kellie T.)

2-1/4 Cups uncooked rice (cook it and set aside)
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
2 Cups diced tomatoes
1 diced onion
salt, pepper, 1 Tbsp. lime juice, cilantro, garlic
4 diced chili peppers

Saute above ingredients together except for the rice.

Add saute mix to cooked rice and add more cilatnro, salt, pepper, 1 Tbsp. lime juice and paprika.

Too funny. I posted this and then realized that Jessica already posted the chili recipe.

Those both sound really good - and I don't think I had seen the chili the first time it was posted. :)
