Chili Verde with Pork Recipe

Friends and family never seem to tire of this chili. We like this as a meal in itself but also use it to top our favorite Mexican foods like burritos.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 1-3/4 hours YIELD:12 servings


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

"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."

"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."
