“Chili Verde” or green chiles with pork. This is my adaptation of a recipe submitted by an ICS (International Chili Society), competition winner.


  1. 1If you’re using fresh chiles, remove skin from chiles! Roast over fire till skin is blackened and sweat in brown paper sack till cool, then remove skin and seeds.
  2. 2Chop chiles, onions, garlic, tomatillos and cilantro. Use canned green chiles and a few jalapenos if fresh, hot Hatch is not available.
  3. 3Brown pork in oil. You could use bacon grease….
    Remove. Sauté onions on medium heat, adding garlic when onion is mostly cooked. Do not burn garlic! Drain off any leftover oil or grease. Add meat back to pot with onions and garlic. Add chicken broth, bay leaves, hot and mild chiles, tomatillos, oregano and cumin. Cover and simmer. Check seasoning and adjust it and consistency as desired.
  4. 4Before serving remove bay leaves and serve chopped cilantro and lime to add as desired.
