Today, I want to share with you a recipe I only learned a little while ago: Colorado Green Chili! The first time I tried this chili was at a friend's house and I was immediately hooked. It's delicious, a bit spicy, and has a slightly thick texture, which makes it completely irresistible. My friend taught me how to make it the traditional way, but I experimented with the recipe until I came up with a version that's quick and easy and will save you time in the kitchen. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 lb pork shoulder, cut into approximately 1-inch pieces
  • Salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cilantro powder (coriander)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons canned roasted green chili peppers
  • 2 cups canned crushed tomatillo peppers
  • 2 cups chicken broth

Directions

  • 1
    Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.
  • 2
    Add the pork and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the cumin, cilantro powder, and cayenne pepper; mix and continue cooking until the pork is slightly browned on all sides, about 10-15 minutes. Remove pork from the pot and set aside.
  • 3
    Reduce to medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, coriander, and roasted chili peppers to the same pot; sauté until vegetables are cooked, about 3-5 minutes.
  • 4
    Add the pork, tomatillo, and chicken broth to the vegetables in the pot. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and cover. Cook until meat is tender, about 30-40 minutes.
  • 5
    Uncover and let it cook for 15 more minutes, or until liquid is slightly reduced.
  • 6
    Serve with tortillas.

Expert Tips
