    Barb Gertz's Note:

    My DD makes this chile verde whenever we get together for Mexican dinners. It is a family favorite. The recipe is from a Sunset Mexican Cookbook,from 1977. Mild canned California green chiles season this meaty pork stew. Serve it with rice or as a burrito filling. For Burritos, spoon pork into warm, soft flour tortillas, add sour cream, tomato wedges, and a squeeze of lime juice and fold to enclose. We also serve this Chile Verde with Tamales. This chile Verde is also good served with scrambled eggs, Enjoy!
