I have not made this recipe yet, but it is tried and true by a friend of mine, on another board, Marsha Tbay, a very reliable source. What I like about this recipe is that it is so versatile, you can use chicken, beef or pork to vary it. Personally, I would brown the meat first in a little oil then continue with the recipe. The 8-10 hours is the time it is cooking in the crock pot.

  1. Combine all ingredients except cilantro in crock pot.
  2. Cover and cook on low setting for 8-10 hours.
  3. Serve garnished with chopped cilantro.
  4. Note: Comments from the person originally posted this: This is what we had for dinner tonight. It's delicious! The original recipe called for 2 pounds of beef round or chuck, cut in 1 inch pieces, but I substituted 5 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, and it turned out fine.

Excellent! I cut up a small section from a pork loin roast. We thought it was great on a cool fall evening. I topped each serving with sour cream and more cilantro.

The blend of tomatillos and poblanos is prevalent and refreshing. Preparation is uncomplicated aside from chopping and dicing. I garnished it with sour cream along with the cilantro. I enjoyed using all of the fresh ingredients. Next time I may combine the tomatillos, onions, and peppers in the blender to make a salsa before adding the chicken and potatoes.
