    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    For serving


    1. 1
      Combine all ingredients (except those for serving) and place in a crock pot.
    2. 2
      Cook on high for one hour and then switch to low for an additional 4-6 hours. (This could easily be cooked on the stove as well).
    3. 3
      At this point I like to break the meat up with a large spoon so that it is more or less "shredded".
    4. 4
      Serve with cilantro, yogurt or sour cream and tortillas (and a spoon!).

      Very easy but tasty. The only changes I made were that I used red enchilada sauce (couldn't find green) and I used verde taco sauce instead of canned tomatillos. I also added some chopped jalapeƱo peppers to give it a nice kick. Make sure to trim the pork well and you'll get a nice lean meal. Will definitely be making this one again.

      This is a great week-night meal that I prepared tonight along with "Simple Homemade Refried Beans" and "Queso Blanco Dip". I used 4 large boneless chicken breasts and only 4 potatoes. It had a very mild flavor, and next time I prepare it I think I will do things a bit differently. When I take the chicken out to shred it, I will separate it from the remaining vegetables and sauce. Then, when preparing tortillas I will put a layer of chicken, a layer of vegetables (with slotted spoon), cheese, sour cream and hot salsa. Overall, it was pretty tasty!

      This was so easy to make and makes the house smell great. We used the Hatch "hot" green enchilada sauce but it turned out very mild after slow-cooking- this is a dish that can be loved by everyone--extremely flavorful without being spicy, so adults with chili-pepper-phobia and even kids will enjoy! This stands out from other chile verde recipes on this site because of the use of the tasty tomatillos; I used fresh tomatillos since canned don't seem to be available anywhere in Orlando. The consistency is like a soup/stew and this would be great over rice, or liquid from the cans could be reduced or omitted if using primarily as tortilla filling. Thanks for sharing in the Please Review my Recipe Game! Loved it!
