Is anyone sad that the Winter months and all of those warm, comforting dishes will soon be fewer and far between? There honestly isn’t anything better than cozying up with a big bowl of soup or stew on a chilly evening. As the weather begins to heat up, I’m fighting the urge to switch up our meals for the warmer days ahead. I know I have a few more weeks to get in as many cozy dishes as I can, starting with this green chili keto pork stew!

One of my favorite things about this low carb pork stew is that it’s perfect for the transition into Spring. While it may be a hearty and cozy stew, the bright and tangy flavors are perfect for this time of year. The hint of orange, the tang of the lime, and the freshness of the cilantro really shine through in the broth. Another bonus is how easy it is to prepare. Dinner is literally on the table in less than 30 minutes making this a great option for a quick and easy dinner!
