Pork Chili Verde

Pork Chili Verde

I mentioned a stew dish I made in this post.  Well, here it is.  It’s my first chili verde and it was delicious! I think the homemade salsa verde really shined through here.  I mean, you can use store bought salsa but it’s worth making it from scratch and it took no time to make!

It rendered a lot between the two of us so the second night, we had tacos with it.  Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to photograph it because of the lighting condition so I’ll have to make it again just to show you the tacos we made out of this dish.  Happy Sunday everyone!

Pork Chili Verde


In a large Dutch oven over medium high heat add olive oil, chopped onions and garlic.  Season with salt and pepper and cook until onions are translucent, about 5-7 minutes.  Add pulled pork and continue to cook for 5 minutes, and then add salsa verde.  Continue to add white beans, chicken broth, braising liquid, ground cumin, chili powder and ground coriander.  Continue to stir until the spices are incorporated.  Cover the stew pot and bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat to medium low and leave the lid ajar.  Simmer for 1 hour.  Check for seasoning before serving.  Ladle chili into a bowl and garnish with scallions and cilantro.

    Anne, this looks utterly amazing! What a winderful way to use your homemade salsa verde, I love it ;D

    I love pork and I love chilies and I love chili. So I love this dish. I just made a dish that’s similar in concept, but quite different in the way I put it together. Love yours – needs to try it. Thanks so much.

    The beer braised pulled pork sounds incredibly good! I can only imagine the flavors going on in this paired with the salsa verde you made! I’m having a drool fest over here.

    ‘Tis the season to make chili! And did you ever make a good one, Anne. This sounds fantastic but so does your beer braised pulled pork. I’d have a devil of a time trying to decide whether to make more sandwiches or this pork chili verde. It’s Sophie’s choice! :)

    This chili looks amazing Anne! So comforting and warming at the same time. I love the sound of all the herbs with beer braised pulled pork. I’m drooling and could go for a big bowl of this :) Pinned :)

    I loved having these in tacos, I’m a HUGE taco fan. There’s a lot of sauce so you kind of have to squeeze most of the liquid out as you pile the good stuff in the tortilla. Or, you can just go for it, messy hands be damned!

    Looks incredible! The tacos sound like a great way to use the leftovers. I hate it when I have a good meal but the light is terrible. Or when my family is too hungry for pictures, which I think would happen if I made this :)

    Anne, I am in love with your Chili Verde! I can smell the cilantro as it warms in the bowl, mmm! I have a hard time getting good shots of soups and stews, but your photography is beautiful.

    Love, Joy
