This family recipe combines spicy peppers with toasty nuts and sesame seeds for a unique and satisfying stew.
3 pounds country style pork rib meat
3 dried chiles pasilla
10 dried chiles de arbol (these are spicy so add to your liking)
4 garlic cloves
1/2 large onion
1 handful of walnuts (or peanuts or even a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter)
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
1 28-ounce can of cooked tomatoes
1 handful cilantro
Salt & pepper to taste
Note: You can find all these chiles at your regular supermarket or at any Mexican market.

Cut meat into small bite-size pieces. Set skillet on high heat and wait for it to be hot, then brown the meat for about 10 minutes or until it is crispy. Lower the temperature to simmer and cover, let cook for about an hour.

In the meantime, heat a small sauce pan with a little bit of olive oil and fry the chiles, garlic, onion, walnuts (if you are using peanut butter there is no need to fry this, just add it to the blender), and sesame seeds. I like to do them one at a time. Place them all in a blender with the tomatoes, salt, pepper and cilantro.

Once the meat is thoroughly cooked add the chile sauce and heat thoroughly.

Serve with corn tortillas and refried beans.

Very good flavor
This was fun to put together. I froze half of it and it kept very well for two months. I might experiment with different meats.
