I made this for my daughter and her family. Her husband is a chili verde junkie. I was simple to make and I browned the pork before adding the wet ingredients. I took home an empty pot. Outstanding and simple. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I think there was a mistake, it says this is a Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives recipe, but what I think they meant to say is this recipe is from a Restaurant Impossible episode before Chef Irvine fixed the recipe, because it is bad. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought it turned out amazing. I added a couple of things like crushed red pepper and sour cream to the sauce but it turned out great!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was good! I needed a shortcut to the recipe of my Mom's... takes quite a bit of time cooking chili's, tomatillo's, peeling them etc, so if you are in a hurry, Id suggest this one! I just used the green chili and not the jalapenos. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Been craving chili verde and this is a awesome and easy recipe! Used country pork ribs. Added bay leaves, coriander, and a half can of water to the recipe. Served with cheddar and jack on top with tortillas. Tasted much better the next few days after cooking as the flavors melded together. Burritos, omelets, on its own, with tortilla chips, tacos, many possibilities. Just finished off our first batch today and already starting the second! It was THAT good! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this recipe for my mom and myself and it came out exactly as I saw it on DDD. The pork was seasoned really well and the verde sauce had a nice kick of flavor and spice to it which made the whole dish really tasty and I hope everyone choses this recipe to cook for their family soon I would recommend it item not reviewed by moderator and published
Hubby always orders chili verde when we go out to eat. Wanted to make it at home - Tried those other complicated recipies - roasting tomatillos, etc, and it didn't come out better than this one, and took an hour+ prep. This is super simple, easy, tasty goodness, a family favorite. I put it all in crockpot and the smell teases my family all day! Great with chicken instead of pork too. Basic recipe - add other ingredients as you like, ie: chopped tomatillos, red/green peppers, and even cannellini beans for texture. Smash cannelli beans before serving to thicken sauce. Tastier the next day when flavors blend. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Triple D did another episode that had green chili. Takes a lot longer to cook but the flavor is great. Check out the recipe look for Chili Verde from Slim's last Chance. I think its on the episode about a burger and a slice or something like that. item not reviewed by moderator and published
