Homemade Green Chile Recipe

1/2-1 lb. pork roast, or chops cubed into small pieces
10 1/2 oz. chicken broth
1 onion, finely chopped
1/4 – 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 can (7 oz.) green chiles, diced
1/4 jalapeno, finely chopped
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. flour or cornstarch, dissolved in water
flour tortillas (or corn for GF)


cheddar cheese, grated
lettuce, shredded
sour cream

Simmer pork in broth on low for 10 minutes. Add all other ingredients except flour and simmer 45 minutes. Thicken with flour so it is like a thick soup. Spoon about 1/4 cup into the center of a flour tortilla. Roll up tortilla and top with more green chile. Sprinkle with cheese, lettuce and tomato. Top with sour cream if desired. This green chile freezes really well.

    I got hungry for green Chile after seeing you recipe again so I had my girl make up a batch. I didn’t have jalapeños or a can of green chilies so I substituted a can of Rotel tomatoes w/green chilies, they are plenty hot for me. I served it over a bean burrito. It was really good!!! Thanks for reminding me I hadn’t made green Chile in a long time. I don’t usually buy pork but for some reason there was a mysterious pkg that was found in my freezer yesterday and today I knew exactly what to use it for. Thanks again.

    This is a good recipe but what I like to do is buy a pork roast and slow cook it in the crockpot with seasoned salt,pepper and a little dash of liquid smoke,then we eat it that way one night and then I take the leftover pork roast,cube it and throw it back in the crockpot with the leftover broth (it makes alot of broth in the crockpot) and then add the rest of the ingredients for the green chile then set it on low to simmer in the crockpot all day.
    We like to pour our green chile over ground beef burritos.
