Pork Chili Verde Recipe

Pork Chili Verde Recipe

Pork slowly stews with jalapenos, onion, green enchilada sauce and spices in this flavor-packed Mexican dish. It's great on its own or stuffed in a warm tortilla with sour cream, grated cheese or olives on the side. —Kimberly Burke, Chico, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Cook: 6-1/2 hours YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 boneless pork sirloin roast (3 pounds), cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 4 medium carrots, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 can (28 ounces) green enchilada sauce
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 1 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • Hot cooked rice
  • Flour tortillas, warmed


  • 1. In a large skillet, saute the pork, carrots, onion and garlic in oil in batches until pork is browned. Transfer to a 5-qt. slow cooker. Add the enchilada sauce, water, jalapenos and cilantro. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours or until meat is tender. Serve with rice and tortillas. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

"This recipe is great! Our family loved it. I had left over pork loin chops that I had made a couple nights ago that was cooked with apples, onions and cumin. The sweetness of the apples and the spice of this enchilada sauce in this recipe not only really complimented this dish but was fast to put together since the chops were already cooked. I just mixed them together in a dutch oven after making the sauce and let them simmer covered to melge for a while. Wow! Definite keeper."

"This is great but it might be easier to leave the jalapeno on the side so you could leave the amount of spice up to the individual person."

"Hubby loved it, really is a great recipe. The next time I make it I'll cut back just a little on the cilantro, though. I love cilantro so it may have been a "heavy" cup, but even so the recipe was still fabulous. Served over brown rice."
