Chile Verde Roasted Pork Stew

Since I had several pounds of shredded pork, I decided to make a stew out of the leftovers.  This stew is an interpretation of a chile verde pork stew but with an addition of red chili flavors.  Chile verde with pork is usually green and looks a lot like salsa verde.  This stew has the flavors of a green chili with the addition of red chili flavors like paprika, chili powder, and ancho chilis.  It turned out really well and I enjoyed all the layers of flavor this stew had. The recipe isn’t too difficult to throw together and it is a great way to use leftover pork roast. I recommend saving the bone from the pork shoulder and throwing it in this stew for added flavor.
