A warm, hearty stew that will leave you full and satisfied. If fresh roasted chiles are not available, you can use canned. Omit the sugar for a low-carb version.

How to Make Chile Verde

Step-by-Step

  1. Chili Sauce:

    Roast 2 pounds of fresh green chiles on a grill or under the broiler until the skin is blackened and bubbly.
  2. Let them cool, peel the skin off and scrape out the seeds. Cut the stem off and discard with the seeds and skin.
  3. Puree or blend the chiles with 1/2 cup water, a tablespoon of vinegar and salt to taste (I usually use about a teaspoon) until smooth.
  4. For the Chili Verde:

    Brown the chicken or pork in a small amount of lard or oil, over high heat.
  5. Place the browned chicken or pork, chili sauce and tomatillos into a large, covered pot over low heat.
  6. Simmer for 2 hours. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for an additional 2 hours. Check every 30 minutes and add water as necessary. Serve hot.
