      I just moved to Texas and had never had chili verde, but have tried some other things with poblanos and this seemed like something that sounded really wonderful. Little did I know......this turned out INCREDIBLE the 1st time, and the flavors are amazing!! I did read all the reviews 1st, and used less of the liquid which made it a very hearty stew- sort of chili, the way we really like it! I might try chicken next time just to make it a little more heart-healthy. All in all, a definite keeper and will be going to this recipe many times in the future for a crowd pleaser!!!!

      I used pork tender loin instead of pork stew meat -- all I had. I ended up cooking the stew for a total of 3-4hours to reduce the amount of liquid to thicken up. Wow, wow, wow - yep, I said it 3 times. Pork was fall apart tender. Liquid was velvety and thick (after the extra cooking time); extremely flavorful. This is one of those recipes that will be in my 'go-to' vault.

      My husband is a gourmet cook and I am a tough critic, but I have to give this recipe 5 stars, hands down! This is by far the best chili verde recipe we've tried. I, like other readers, cut the chicken broth in half and let it simmer on low for 3 hours. I used pork tenderloin and added a few more jalapenos because we enjoy the spice! It turned out INCREDIBLE! We had our Pastor's family and a visiting Pastor and his wife over and everyone loved it! Great Recipe!
