This is one of my son's favorite dish.They love chile verde sauce,I usually make it with pork but I've made it with chicken,turkey too.
You can add cumin if you like,my family doesn't care for that flavor so I usually omit it.
This is great just to eat with rice,beans and tortillas or make tacos,burritos,tostadas,etc.
