I was originally going to make Chicken Tortilla Soup for our Mexican dish, but realized all of our chicken was frozen.  I did have a pork loin in the refrigerator that wasn’t frozen, so I thought I would try it out.  It was a success!  It was really good!



– 2 lb Boneless Pork Loin, cut up into small pieces
– 1 onion, chopped
– 3 garlic cloves, crushed
– Olive Oil
– 3 cans chicken broth (reg size)
– 1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
– 1 can diced green chiles
– 2 tsp chili powder
– 1 1/2 tsp cumin
– 3/4 lime – squeeze juice (approx 2 tsp juice)
– Red pepper flakes to taste


– Cut up boneless pork loin into bite-sized pieces. Saute with chopped onion and crushed garlic in olive oil. Cook until pork is no longer pink.

– Add chicken broth, tomatoes, green chiles, chili powder, cumin, lime juice, and red pepper flakes.

– Cook over medium heat for 30 minutes to an hour. The longer you cook, the more tender the meat will be.

– Serve with sour cream, cheese, and tortilla chips.

**Tip: Use Mexican 4 Cheese blend and Lime flavored Tortilla Chips for extra flavor**

    My family isn’t big soup fans, but I think this might work. My girls love to eat anything with sour cream and chips 🙂 Thanks

    You gotta use whatcha have and it sounds like it turned out very well!!
    Great recipe 🙂

  4. The flavor sounds really good. Since we aren’t really big on soup either, I’d probably make it more of a thick topping for the tortillas and make it like a nacho type meal…. mmmm.
    Love that you used the pork, we like porkloin, it is tender and lean and Bill can only have lean meat because of his liver disease.
    Thanks for all the new ideas!!
