I love, love, love green chilies! This is my simple and GREAT tasting green chilie. I use ingredients that most everyone should be able to find in their hometown grocery stores. You can use this in so many different dishes. I like to eat is as just a soup on cold days. I also freeze any left overs to use in any Mexican dish that calls for salsa. Great over pork or chicken enchiladas, chimichangas, or you can melt with cheese to make a great dip. I do not use any oil in this recipe and you never even miss it.

Enjoyed this with some rice and beans in a tortilla. Never made this before, to my surprise it was easy. I did use chopped green chilies, 2 jalapenos and mild rotel. We loved the heat. Thank you!

I love chili with pork - and no bean, this one was very simple and tasted delicious. My only mistake was in cutting the recipe in half, we only got about 4 servings. I used pork loin, a small piece of fresh jalapeno, regular tomatoes (the others would have been too spicy for my husband right now). I added two cloves of garlic, 4 tomatillas, a pinch of red pepper flakes and cilantro. I made this the night before serving. I served it over rice and with Recipe #4496 which made a perfect meal. Thanks Huskergirl, this will go into my top recipes of 2008. Reviewed by a chic chef for zwt4 .
