Reviews for Chili Verde
Sort By :
"Regarding Tamara's review- what you conceive of as "chili" is not chile verde. Chile verde never has beans in it. (although most chili purists would say the same about chili). This recipe is a shortcut version -not the real deal,but can be used as a quick base with a many additional seasonings added in. I went ahead and did a New Mexico style Green chile stew with potatoes. I do like using the crock pot for making sure the pork is tender and infusing flavor. Hatch roasted green chiles are a must! Buy them in season, roast and freeze for use later."
"My chilil verde recipe is very time consuming and I wanted something easy. This was easy and tasty. I did use green enchilada sauce for half the chicken broth."
"Very tasty. However, chili just isn't chili unless it contains beans. I added red kidney beans to complete the meal, only because I didn't have pino beans. This one is a keeper!!"

"I initially made this recipe because I was testing recipes for a chili cookoff. While I didn't use it for the cookoff, it is one of our favorites. My husband loves it. And you can spice it up if you want. This one is definetely a keeper!! Also goes good with the "quick" Spanish rice recipe on ToH. Basically calls for minute rice and salsa."
