Mexican pork

Another mouthwatering recipe for winter. I really love the cinnamon in it!
1 red onion, finely chopped
half green pepper, diced (or you can slice it into long strips, but I tried to hide this as kids won't eat it if spotted)
2-3 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground coriander
pinch of ground cumin
1 tsp paprika
generous pinc of chilli flakes
1 packet (appr. 500g) pork chops, sliced into thin strips
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1 large carrort, finely grated
1 tin red kidney beans. rinsed
salt, pepper
 Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan. Add the onion and pepper and cook until soften.
 Take off the heat, add the paprika, stir the add the meat and other spices, stir again and put back on the heat. Cook until pork is almost done.
 Add the beans, carrot, chopped tomatoes. Stir, and simmer for 15-20 mins.
Serve with rice, a green salad and a tortilla and top with soured cream.
