Slow Cooker Chile Verde
I get so tired of reading snarky reviews on this site because a recipe isn't "AUTHENTIC." I, too, prefer green chile from scratch where I roast the chiles myself. But I don't always have time for that, and often need to put a quick, healthy dinner together that the whole family will eat. So I'm grateful when other folks put recipes on here with some shortcuts that make my life easier.
Now the review part... this is a delicious, easy recipe. It's good over rice, on breakfast tacos, burritos, or with quesadillas. I left out the jalepenos because I have young children. The green salsa still gave the chile plenty of heat. I added 1 tsp. of cumin, 1/4 tsp. of white pepper, and 2 TBSP. of lime juice (I use those in my from scratch recipe). This recipe works well with chicken if you don't have pork on hand (and, yes, I know the chicken isn't "AUTHENTIC." chile verde). Happy cooking!
