Mexican pork and black bean stew. This is one of those crazy satisfying recipes that insinuates itself into your list of favourites. It’s not flashy. It’s not much to look at.

Mexican comfort food. Well, maybe somewhere between Mex and Tex-Mex. Doesn’t matter. Chicken with tomatillo sauce is all about simple, satisfying flavours. Tomatillo, jalapeño, garlic, onion, chicken. That’s just good living.
