    1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas mark 6. Place pork into a heavy roasting tin and add enough water to cover bottom of tin. Cover tin with a tight fitting lid and cook until browned. You may need to add more water while it is cooking so be sure to check.
    2. In a large stockpot, combine browned pork, chillies, potatoes, tomatoes, onion, celery, cumin, chilli pepper and water. Simmer for 5 to 6 hours.
    3. Remove bones from soup, pull off any meat, and place meat back into soup. Serve with chopped fresh coriander on top, if desired.

    Tip:

    If you want less heat, remove all seeds from the green chillies before dicing.

    I liked it! Second time I used chicken instead of pork and chicken broth instead of water, and it also worked out great - 05 Jun 2016
