Deana's Story

One of my families favorite meals. Adapted from a place I worked at years ago


3-4 lb
of either beef, pork or chicken (i use a pork loin)
find more delicious recipes at
2 lb
fresh tomatillo or cans (i use fresh when available)
2 can(s)
whole green chilies
3 large
1 large
white onion
3 clove
1/4 c
cilantro, fresh
2 Tbsp
1/2 tsp
oregan, dried
1 c
beef broth
monterey jack cheese
tortilla shells

Directions Step-By-Step

Brown meat on both sides, place in crockpot.
If using fresh tomatillo’s-peel and rinse cook until light green- this will only take a few minutes once boiling. Place all ingredients in blender (expect meat of course ?) and blend until smooth. (including water from tomatillo’s)
Pour over meat and cook 4-7 hours until meat is done and sauce it to your liking. I always taste sauce every few hours to make sure enough spices are in it for our liking.
When meat is done take out and shred. Make burritos, top with sauce and cheese..and what ever other toppings you may enjoy like sour cream, extra cilantro or salsa
