MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 28, 2012

"I used the base of this recipe and modified it slightly. I put everything in a slow cooker on low for the day (about 9.5 hours). I also substituted pork loin for pork shoulder and fire roasted tomatoes vs stewed tomatoes. I increased the cumin to 1 TB, added a little extra cilantro, and added 4 medium golden potatoes. It was a big hit. Great recipe. I will make it again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 11, 2009

"It was okay but turned out more "red" than I like my green chili. I only added 3/4 the amount of tomatoes and it was still too "tomatoey" for my taste."
