How To Make chile verde

  • 1
    Brown meat on both sides, place in crockpot.
  • 2
    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)
  • 3
    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
