  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 5 cup


Heat oil in a heavy skillet or deep pot. Add flour and whisk for 3 minutes to prevent clumping.

Add diced green chiles and cook for 3 minutes, stirring so mixture doesn’t stick to the skillet. Let come to a boil. Lower heat; add garlic powder and salt to taste.

Add pork and broth and let come to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes, allowing flavors to come together. Let mixture cool
