This pork chili verde is award-winning– and for good reason! Read the comments below to see all those who have used this recipe to win their chili cook-offs.
A few years ago my husband and I went to a chili cook-off at our church. We tried all of the different chili recipes but there was one that both of us couldn’t get enough of. It was simply amazing. The pork was perfectly tender and the taste was outstanding. I finally got up the nerve to ask for the recipe and permission to share it here on FavFamilyRecipes. I am so excited to share it with all of you. It is definitely an award-winning recipe! Thanks Diana for sharing your chili verde recipe with us!
A few notes about this recipe… I am sharing the original recipe as given to me. Exactly. To be completely honest, I usually don’t bother with the 2 1/2 Tbsp. of chicken broth but that is usually due to the fact I don’t keep stock on hand like I do broth. I usually just leave it out and I haven’t noticed a difference.
It may seem like there are a lot of ingredients in this recipe but most you will probably have on hand in your pantry. If you are having a hard time finding enough green chiles (you will find that 27oz is a lot when you are looking for green chiles).. you can sometimes find them whole (rather than chopped or diced) in large cans at the supermarket. Fo ahead and get them whole and then chop them yourself in a food processor or blender. It will still taste the same (in fact, this is what I usually do because it is way cheaper than buying tons of little cans).
*Keep in mind this is a little spicy. Feel free to cool it down with cheese and sour cream.
