Red's Green Chili

Updated: Dec 19, 2020

Green chili is a hearty, rich stew made with slow-cooked pork, green chilis, herbs, and spices. There are a lot of different ways to make this, and there are some very passionate arguments about which is the best. This recipe is easy and delicious and can be eaten from a bowl with or without toppings, or can be used to smother burritos, fries, etc.

How to choose pork:

Choose pork that is pink to reddish-pink in color and avoid any that looks pale. The fat should be white with no dark spots.
