I'm always challenged to come up with my family's favorite Mexican food. This is a tried and true recipe that is so easy to make that no one knows how simple but delicious Chile Verde can be. ***** Served with V Best Spanish Rice (Easy) makes a complete meal ;)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all seasonings together in small bowl (except Salsa Verde).
  2. Mix Beef Boulion with water and pour in crock pot first.
  3. Rub meat with seasoning, place in crock pot, (for best results, I rub meat with seasoning the night before, let it sit in refrig to marinate).
  4. Cover and set on 6-8 hours. (Usually cooked within 6 hours).
  5. one hour before serving, drain pork drippings out leaving about 1/2 cup with meat. Pour Salsa Verde on top and stir to break up meat. Continue to cook. Just before serving I add a cornstarch slurry to thicken it up. (1 tblsp cornstarch, 1 tbls water).
  6. Serve with Spanish rice (Recipe #282467)and beans and enjoy!

I made this dish following the recipe exactly and it was the spotlight of my family's Mexican dinner night. Every few weeks we get together for an ethnic dinner night and because of this dish, they want Mexican every other time. It even smells so good when marinating overnight. Cannot rave enough about this recipe! Thank you.

This was VERY tasty. I had bought pork shoulder and didn't know what to do with it. I did add a bed of onions to the crockpot which turned out nicely. I will be keeping this recipe handy. Thanks for posting!
