Need An Easy Dinner Recipe?

With summer upon us, I do a lot more cooking in the crock pot. Here's a fabulous recipe for crock pot chile verde, shared by BMQG member, Jen. I'll also add the recipe to the BMQG Kitchen section of this blog. Check it out!

Easy Chile Verde in the Crockpot

Start with 1 pound of tomatillos (I always grab about 12; if you have a large crockpot and want to go big, add more!), 1 small onion, and some cloves of garlic (I like garlic, so I used 6 large ones today).

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Peel everything, rinse and halve the tomatillos, and chop the onion into big chunks. Grab a casserole dish (I use a glass one) and cover the entire bottom with a thin layer of olive oil. Place all ingredients into the dish and roast for 30 minutes.

When that is ready, pour the roasted ingredients into your blender and blend away. Next, add a rinsed bunch of cilantro (I cut off just the very end of the stalks) and a 4 oz. can of diced chiles (I use mild; we have baby tongues here) and blend with the rest of the sauce.

Blend it up! So easy.

Take some pork chops, amount dependent upon how many mouths you have to feed (I usually buy about 1 or 1.5 pounds for my family of 4), and place in greased crockpot. Add salt & pepper to them according to your liking. Take blender and pour sauce into the crockpot, covering the pork chops. Cover and cook about 8 hours on low. And that's it!

Ready to go! Chile verde; yum

Be sure to discard the fat when you shred your finished meat. We like ours served in tortillas with some cheese and sour cream, burrito style. Yum!!

  1. I put this on to cook this morning so that I could get in some sewing time today. The house smelled wonderful, and dinner was delicious! In no time at all, the kitchen was cleaned up and I was back to sewing! My kind of day!
