How do you make Smoked Pork Soup?
This scrumptious soup starts off with smoked pulled pork. You can purchase some already smoked or cook your own. I have purchased it from some of my local grocery stores and the big warehouse stores like Sams and Costco.
First heat a little oil olive over medium heat in a Dutch oven or heavy stock pot. Add the onions and the corn and cook until the corn starts to turn a rich golden brown. Stir occasionally but not so often that the corn is not browning. This can take anywhere from 10-15 minutes depending on how dark you want the corn. Stir in the cumin and Cajun seasonings cooking for about one minute while stirring constantly. Add the chicken broth scraping the bottom of the pan to deglaze it. Now stir in the green chiles, salsa style tomatoes, diced tomatoes and cooked pork. Simmer for 20-25 minutes.
