Chile Verde – Pork Chile Verde Recipe

Chili Verde Main Pic

I really just can’t say enough about this Pork Chili Verde recipe.  But first off, just know that you don’t have to add the pork if you’re just wanting the Chili Verde.  This recipe is good to go either way and it’s as good as it gets.  If you don’t know by now, I’m a man of my word and I don’t post recipes unless they are the best of the best.  So be rest assured that this recipe, like the many before this one, is a winner.

You’re going to need a Good Green Enchilada Sauce to make this and I’ve included my recipe for that below, but you can always use a can if you’re feeling lazy or if you just don’t want it to taste amazing.  Also know that you can control the heat by adding or taking away the Jalapeno in this recipe all together.  But I feel like one pepper along with the Anaheim’s is a great balance of heat.  Even my kids were eating this without complaints and I felt like it had plenty of kick.  We ate it till it was gone.  So give this a try and let me know what you think!

I'm just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone's Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference!
