  1. Place the chipotle chile and water into a blender, and puree until smooth. Pour into a slow cooker, and add the pork, chicken, hominy, green chilies, onion, garlic, and chicken broth. Season with oregano, cumin, pepper, and the bay leaf.
  2. Cover, and cook on Low 6 to 7 hours until the meats are tender. Remove the bay leaf before serving.

I am mainly writing this review so that some beginner, such as myself, doesn't make the same mistake I did...the recipe calls for ONE Chipotle, not ONE CAN!!! OMG, my mouth is on fire. Will definitely try this again though.


I made this last night and it turned out fabulous. I ended up doubling the recipe because of the size pork roast I had. I followed the recipe exactly with only one exception. Toward the end of cooking I added one large can of green enchilada sauce, medium heat. I divided the batch and took half to my Mom and Stepfather, along with some cornbread, and they loved it! Thanks for the great recipe. I will be making this again!!


This is a favorite now! I cooked it over the stove & for the meat I used the pork chops & chicken breast I had. I chopped up 2 porkchops(bone & all) & a whole chicken breast & a half YUM..YUM! I cooked it down until it reached a think gravey. It is slighty spicy but oh so good! We had mexican rice & refied black beans as a side. YUM YUM!
