In a mixing bowl, stir cornstarch and 1½ tsp. water until cornstarch is dissolved.
Cook the Vegetables
Place a medium pot over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add pepper, onions, cilantro (reserve a pinch for garnish), and ¼ tsp. salt to hot pot. Stir occasionally until onions are tender, 3-4 minutes.
Make the Chile
Stir cornstarch mixture again to recombine.
Add pork, 1 cup water, chicken base, corn, tomatillo salsa, cornstarch mixture, and a pinch of salt to pot. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir occasionally until pork is warmed through and liquid thickens slightly, 3-5 minutes.
If too thick, add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
