#91 :: Pork & Peppers Mexican-Style

Wow, it's been a long few weeks since we cooked! Jamie and I have both been super busy with work and other activities, so cooking dinner together has been on the back burner for a while. But, last night we were both home and decided to get back on track! This is a recipe Jamie found online and it turned out wonderful. I can't wait to have the leftovers for lunch today!

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 3/4 pound lean pork, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1 each red, yellow and green bell peppers, diced (about 2 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground dried chipotle pepper (optional)
  • 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup sour cream


Heat oil in large skillet over medium high heat. Add green onions; cook and stir 2 minutes. Add pork; cook and stir 5 minutes or until browned. Add bell peppers and garlic. Cook and stir 5 minutes or until bell peppers begin to soften.

Season mixture in skillet with salt and pepper. Add mushrooms, cumin, chili powder and chipotle pepper, if desired. Cook and stir 10 to 15 minutes until pork is cooked through and vegetables are tender. Top each serving with shredded cheese and sour cream and roll it up in a tortilla, burrito-style.

Makes 4 servings
