I LOVE chili verde and order it whenever I can at restaurants and figured out how to make an easy, tasty version at home. People have the option to eat the chili verde with a fork or in tortillas with a variety of toppings such as cheese, cilantro, minced onions or lime wedges. There are never leftovers at my house.—Julie Rowland, Salt Lake City, Utah

"I took this recipe and combined it with some other ingredients from other taste of home Chile Verde recipes, including a chopped onion and the addition of some garlic for extra flavor. This was absolutely delicious as promised and has become a quick family favorite. I did not serve it with rice. It stands on its own as a filling and fabulous comfort food!"
