      I absolutely love this! I didn't exactly follow the directions. I left out the bell pepper and used a white onion instead of green. I assumed when the Chef says "green enchilada sauce" the second time (16 oz) he means the Herdz salsa verde, so that is what i used. I browned the pork and onions in the olive oil and then just dumped in the rest of the ingredients and simmered for about 4 hours. Delicious over rice, or to smother burritos. The flavor is authentic as far as I am concerned!

      Made this for a bunch of friends that are Latino, they gave me great remarks. I also used jalapeno instead of serrano peppers for my own taste. Also, instead of shoulder I used tenderloin; instead of boiling meat, I browned it off and cooked everything in my slowcooker.

      I made this last week and it was great! It was very similar to the recipe I always use except it added the oregano and cumin which made it even tastier. I always boil the pork for 1 hour before doing the other steps and I use pork stew meat. I use La Victoria Enchilada sauce because we like it alot better than Las Palmas. I usually let it simmer for an hour and garnish it with green onions, cilantro and cheese. I serve it with homeade rice and bean and tortillas-it melts in your mouth and is one of our favorite meals. Great recipe, this is the best method for making chili verde! Thanks!
