We found the Smoked Pulled Pork from Costco is a great shortcut to buying and cooking up a pork butt. It’s a tasty Tex-Mex soup option that’s full of flavor!
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
3 ears corn, shucked and kernels removed (or 2 cups frozen)
1 Tbsp ground cumin
1–2 tsp Cajun seasoning (to taste)
4 cups chicken broth
8 oz can green chiles
14.5 oz can fire roasted salsa style tomatoes
14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
1 lb chopped smoked pork butt
- Heat oil olive over medium heat in a Dutch oven or heavy stock pot. Add onions and the corn. Cook until the corn starts to turn a rich golden brown; stirring occasionally. This can take 10-15 minutes depending on how dark you want the corn.
- Stir in the cumin and Cajun seasonings. Cook for 1 minute; stirring constantly. Add chicken broth scraping the bottom of the pan to deglaze it. Stir in the green chiles, salsa style tomatoes, diced tomatoes and cooked pork. Simmer for 20-25 minutes.
