1 to 2 tablespoons oil
1 cup coarsely chopped onions
1 to 2 pounds lean pork cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 to 2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
2 cloves of garlic
2 cans roasted chili peppers
1 can/bottle of Tomatillos
Heat oil in heavy pot. Toss pork with flour, and brown. When all the meat has been browned, add the onions and garlic and saute for a few minutes. Add the cumin, the chili peppers, and the tomatillo sauce. Add some chicken broth. Simmer until meat is tender. Sprinkle with cilantro.
Serve with flour or corn tortillas and sides of beans, guacamole, salsa, cheese,etc..
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon to 1/4 cup lard/shortening
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup warm water (might need a bit more)
Place the flour, salt, baking powder in food processor and pulse to
mix. Cut in the shortening and then add the warm water and process to
make a soft dough. Dough should be soft but not wet and sticky. Wrap in
plastic and let rest for at least 30 minutes.
Divide dough into 10 or 12 pieces and shape into balls. Keep covered.
Roll each ball out into a 7 to 9 inch circle. Dough should be thin.
Cook on a dry hot grill or frying pan on medium heat, turning once. Do
not over cook or they will be hard. Butter and roll up and wrap in
teatowel to keep warm as you cook the other tortillas.
(I place the ones wrapped in the towel in a low 200 oven to keep warm,
while I am cooking the rest.)

Super ~ one of my favorite meals (but yours' looks better than ANY I've seen.)Ann, you must publish a hardbound cookbook (with your own photos), I'm drooling here… happens every time I visit your blog. xoxo~m
I just love the way that chili looks, it makes me want to go get everything and make it right away. Those tortillas are perfect!! Really beautiful dish that went immediately into my files!
This is my kind of comfort food– of course, I'm half Mexican anyway. I can see adapting this for my slow cooker. Homemade flour tortillas is on my list of \”gotta make\”. I used to watch my Nana making them, and I should just go ahead and do it. Looks absolutely delicious.
Boy do I love chile verde. Your recipe sounds great. I especially like the addition of home made flour tortillas.
Debby, I've made it in a Nesco 6 quart roaster. Cooks quicker than a slow cooker but the same idea. Once you have made your own flour tortillas you will never want to go back to store bought.
Hi, I just made a version of your pork chile verde (fresh Hatch green chiles are in stores!) and I was wondering what your side dish is aside from the beans. I am always searching for a good side dish to go with my New Mexican style meals. I love how you serve your pork on top of a cheese filled tortilla which I will do tonight. Thank you for a mouth-watering photos and a great dinner ideas.
Wendy, you could serve a Mexican style rice instead of or along side pinto or black beans. Thanks for your kind remarks.~Ann
