How to make it

  • Warm ¼ cup of water in a small pot.
  • Add pasilla chile and pink peppercorn and cook until the chiles are tender. Pasilla chile is dry so you will need to get a sharp knife to get inside and take the seeds and veins out before cooking it.
  • Blend together chile, peppercorn, onion and garlic cloves.
  • Fry pork in vegetable oil in a large pot (olla means pot in Spanish) until it starts turning brown.
  • Squeeze orange and add the juice to the pork and cook together for about 5 minutes.
  • In the meantime, cube chayote and cut the ear corn sideways in small cylinders.
  • Add salsa and vegetables to the pot and pour water to cover all ingredients.
  • Add salt to taste.
  • Cook for about 35-40 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  • Serve hot with some chopped onion, fresh cilantro and the juice of half a lime. Note: for some strange reason Mexicans love to add lime to almost anything, fruit, stews, tacos, etc. In this case the addition of lime to the stew gives it a delicious touch that you can’t afford to miss)
