chile verde

This authentic Mexican chile verde is made of tender pieces of pork simmered in a flavorful tomatillo and green chile sauce. This stew is a staple in Mexican cuisine.

Let’s get started!

- pork shoulder - tomatillos - jalapeño peppers - poblano peppers - serrano peppers - onions - garlic - cilantro

Ingredients Needed

If the chile verde is too thick, stir in ½ cup of water or chicken stock at a time. 

*Quick Tip!*

Place the tomatillos and peppers on a baking sheet and broil on high. Remove them from the oven, cover to allow them to stem, and then peel the skin off. 


Add the tomatillos, peppers, onions, and garlic into a large blender and blend until smooth. Set aside until ready to use.


Sear the pork on all sides for about 10 minutes. Pour the chile verde all around the pork in the pot and cook for 2 1/2 hours.


Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the lime juice and cilantro!
