Chef Rick Bayless’s pork stew is smoky and delicious, especially when topped with avocado, cheese and onion.

  1. 1 1/4 pounds trimmed boneless pork shoulder, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
  2. 1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
  3. 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  4. 3 bay leaves
  5. 3/4 pound red potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  6. 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  7. 1 large fresh chorizo, casing removed
  8. 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  9. 1 garlic clove, minced
  10. One 28-ounce can peeled Italian tomatoes, chopped and drained
  11. 2 chipotle chiles in adobo, seeded and minced, plus 4 teaspoons sauce
  12. Salt and sugar, for seasoning
  1. In a large saucepan, simmer the pork, marjoram, thyme and bay leaves in 4 cups of salted water, partially covered, until the meat is tender, 45 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the pork to a plate; let cool slightly, then tear it into smaller pieces. Skim the fat from the pork broth; reserve 1 1/2 cups.
  2. In a large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook the potatoes until just tender, about 8 minutes. Drain well.
  3. In a medium, deep skillet, heat the oil. Add the chorizo and stir over moderately low heat, breaking it up, until cooked through, 10 minutes; transfer to a plate. Add the pork and onion to the skillet and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until well-browned, 10 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the tomatoes and chorizo and cook for 5 minutes. Add the potatoes, chipotle, adobo sauce and the 1 1/2 cups of pork broth; simmer for 10 minutes. Season with salt and a pinch of sugar and serve.
Serve With Flour tortillas, sliced avocado, red onion and queso fresco.
