Ingredients

Directions

In a heavy Dutch oven, on medium-high heat saute the onion, red pepper, and jalapeno until they are all well caramelized. Throw in the garlic and the spices then cook for another couple of min. set off the heat.

Season the pork with salt, fresh ground pepper and plenty of Essence. dredge the seasoned pork in the flour.

Set the pot back on the flame. When it reaches full heat, throw in the coated pork with all the flour.

Cook the mixture until the pork starts to render, the meat begins to brown, and the flour and oil have created a nice rich roux. add the chocolate and stir until it melts.

Stir the hot stock into the pork mixture stirring all the while, then add the chili puree.

Adjust seasoning (will need salt).

Simmer until the pork is very tender and the Smokey gravy is thick and silky.

Serve over lots of rice with hot fresh tortillas and good Mexican beer
