Chile Verde


Chile verde is a Mexican stew that is traditionally made with pork and a green broth of tomatillos and chile peppers {essentially salsa verde}.  To make it easy and to keep the pork tender, we use a slow cooker. 

I like to serve our chile verde with corn tortillas, lime-cilantro rice or Mexican arroz and sour cream.
