My husband learned how to make this in the sixties at the Mexican Restaurant he worked at. It was served as a soup or thickened as a great smothering sauce over burritos or anything else Mexican. It has plenty of pork and green chili's to put any setting in ahhhh, land.

  • 1 large
    pork roast
  • 2 large
    cans or diced or whole green chilis
  • 1 large
  • 2 Tbsp
    chopped garlic
  • 1 large
    canned tomatoes
  • 3 Tbsp
    oil to braze pork roast
  • 1/2 gal
  • 1 pkg
    of shredded cheese

How to Make Green Chile


  1. Braise the pork roast in a large skillet in the oil, on all sides.
  2. Drop in a 5 quart crock pot and add first 5 ingredients. Adjust water to your own crock pot, leaving an inch or so. Let cook 8 hours on low.
  3. Shred the roast and add back into the pot. If you want the sauce instead of the soup, just take out a quart or so and add a flour and water mixture just like a gravy. You may add hotter peppers such as jalapenos or hot sauce. Sprinkle cheese in soup or burrito's.
