Chili Verde

Chili Verde


"This is a 'brown sauce' that I have had over chimichangas in Mexican restaurants, and is one of my favorites. When I found I could make it at home, it has become a regular. May be served as soup or over chimis. Top with sour cream and shredded cheese. Enjoy."

  1. Pour half of the Worcestershire sauce into the pan of a slow cooker, and half of the garlic pepper. Place the roast in the pan, and sprinkle remaining Worcestershire sauce and garlic pepper over the top. Add the onions, and chilies, and pour in the chicken broth. Cover, and cook on Low for 8 to 10 hours.
  2. When the roast is tender enough to pull apart with a fork, add the green salsa, and the beans, if desired. Continue cooking until heated through. Serve as soup or over chimichangas.

I chopped the pork into cubes. I used a whole pound of great northern beans. I also used fresh garlic. This was easy enough to do but it was too bland for us. It came out much soupier than I tho...

I really liked this sauce. We served it with warm flour tortillas and actually, my husband has scooped it over most everything since. It's spicy but not to the point of breathing fire or sweatin...
