“This is my slow cooker version of a green chile stew from New Mexico. It is great to serve with tortillas, tortilla chips, green onions, and sour cream. “


1 pound beef tenderloin, cubed
1 pound boneless pork loin, cubed
1/4 cup masa harina
1 tablespoon olive oil

1 dash cayenne pepper (optional)
salt to taste
