I used to frequent La Bola's in the 1980s when it was still around. At the time it was definitely my favorite Mexican restaurant. Being a green chili fiend and living only 3 hours from Santa Fe, I've tried lots of great green chili stew recipes in great restaurants through Colorado and New Mexico. This is still probably my favorite and the one that I make at home.
Best chili ever! I like the texture of the pork shoulder better than using tenderloin. Never left-overs to throw away.
I've been making this chile verde for 20 years! Best recipe I've found, and always devoured :) Great for leftovers, too, of course! Originally featured in the Colorado Cache cookbook by the Junior League of Denver, from the La Bola restaurant. We eat it like a stew, with warm flour tortillas. Any pork will work.
I lost my Colorado Cookbook in a fire, so I am very thankful to find this excellent recipe again. I use pork tenderloin instead of a pork shoulder. this will cut the calories and the fat! It is delicious in and over Burritos. I am sure it will be one of your favorite recipe's if you love Mexican! :)
