This is my version of the Green Chile Sauce you’ll find smothering burritos (among other uses) at restaurants along the Colorado Front Range like Santiago’s, Consuelo’s and The Armadillo. You can adjust the heat by adding or leaving out the jalapeno peppers and seeds from the roasted peppers. Adapted from a recipe that Petradish posted on Chowhound back in 2005 to mimic Santiago’s.
In a heavy pot over medium heat, heat 2 tablespoons of oil. Add pork, and brown it for about 2 minutes. Add onion, garlic, cumin, salt, pepper and oregano. Cook until the onion is softened but not brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in flour and brown it a little. Stir in chicken broth until thoroughly mixed, scraping the browned goodness off the bottom of the pot. Add the peppers and tomato. Bring to a boil, then partially cover pot, lower heat to a simmer and cook 1 1/2-2 hours or until pork is tender and sauce is the right strength and thickness. Add water or broth or reducing it longer to correct the thickness. Taste for salt and pepper.
Even 87 year old Grandmas have tricks up their sleeve! After trying this jam for the first time and loving the “fresh” strawberry taste and perfect hint of rhubarb, I was in for a big surprise when she let me in on her secret ingredient!
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!

In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
