Chili Verde

Well, another chili cool off has come and gone. There were 12 of us this time. So completion was a bit stiffer, but we have another success, and another award. 

I always wanted to know how to make chile verde. So I searched the Internet until I found one I liked.
Found it on Simple Recipes. 

Of course I did it my way.  

1/2 lbs tomatillos
2 jalapeños
1 poblano pepper
3 tbls minced garlic
1large bunch cilantro 
1 large onion
4 lbs pork roast
1 small can green chilies
Salt and pepper
2 tsp oregano
1/2 cup Sour cream
2 cups chicken stock

Husk the tomatillos and slice in half. Half the peppers, and remove the seeds. Place on a baking sheet until the tomatillos are browned and the peppers and charred.

Put the peppers in a zip lock bag and let sit for 5 minutes. This will help the skins to loosen so they can be removed. 

Place the skinned peppers, garlic, cilantro and tomatillos in a blender and blend until smooth. Set aside. 

Cut  the pork in chunks, so it easier to cook. 

Brown in a skillet with the sliced onions and salt and pepper. Don't cook the meat all the way. 

 Add the meat, oregano, onion,  blended contents and chicken stock  to a crock pot. Cook on low 5 hours. And the sour cream and serve.
