Chili Verde

READY IN: 2hrs 25mins
Recipe by Happy Hippie

YUM! A recipe I found in a little cookbook that includes recipes from Home Economics teachers across the USA. It's so good and easy to prepare. Serve over cooked pinto beans with tortillas and a salad to round out your meal. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
