Pork Chile Verde

This is one of my favourite meals. 

You can use any cut of pork, but my preference is a pork butt or shoulder.

It can be served in bowls, like chili accompanied by homemade flour tortillas.


Or over flour tortillas filled with cheese.

With a side of beans.

I used the leftovers to make a layered dip for the next day's dinner.
Beans topped with pork chile verde, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, homemade salsa, chopped tomatoes and black olives.

I cut up the leftover flour tortillas and fried them.

Makes great scoops for the dip.
I prefer fried flour tortilla chips over corn tortilla chips. 

made with the juice of an orange, lime and lemon, a little sugar syrup ,
Tequila and Triple Sec.

Pork Chile Verde
1 to 2 tablespoons oil
1 cup coarsely chopped onions
1 to 2  pounds lean pork cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 to 2  tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
2 cloves of garlic
2 cans roasted chili peppers
1 can/bottle of Tomatillos
chicken broth

Heat oil in heavy pot. Toss pork with flour, and brown.  When all the meat has been browned, add the onions and garlic and saute for a few minutes.   Add the cumin, the chili peppers, and the tomatillo sauce.  Add some chicken broth. Simmer until meat is tender. Sprinkle with cilantro.

Serve with flour or corn tortillas and sides of beans, guacamole, salsa, cheese,etc..


  1. It is 2:00am here...and this post just made me so hungry! What a glorious plate of food!

  2. Delicious recipe. I love tomatillios but only use them to make a chicken dish I've made forever... need to try a pork version. Thanks for the great recipe!

  3. Mmmmm...we LOVE Chili Verde! I have never made it, though, and am thrilled to see your recipe! We had a chili verde pizza recently that rocked the world!

  4. Perfect food for a cold, wintry day!

    We're off to the movies in a bit, and I know these images will play themselves over and over in my head. It's highly doubtful that theater popcorn will fill that void.
