Notes

  • This easy green chile recipe calls for pork, but I also occasionally make it with cubed cooked chicken.
  • This recipe is a great way to use leftover pork or chicken.
  • If you like, you can make the green chile and instead of serving wrapped in a tortilla, you can use to pour over your favorite Mexican dishes like burritos or enchiladas.
  • This green chile recipe is also good served over rice and garnished with the cheese, lettuce and other toppings.
