    1. 1
      Cut pork into 1/2 inch cubes and with the pork bones, fry over low heat until brown and the meat is slightly dry. If pork is very fatty, pour off grease until you only have 4-5 tbsp left.
    2. 2
      Using a colander, strain tomatoes into an 8-qt sauce pan and rough chop the tomatoes. Add tomato sauce, garlic, hot water and cooked pork and bones to tomatoes.
    3. 3
      Bring to rapid boil and continue boiling for 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
    4. 4
      Add spices, chopped hot peppers and chopped chili strips and continue to boil for 20 more minutes, stirring frequently.
    5. 5
      Lower heat to medium and continue cooking for 20 minutes.

      Best chili ever! I like the texture of the pork shoulder better than using tenderloin. Never left-overs to throw away.

      I've been making this chile verde for 20 years! Best recipe I've found, and always devoured :) Great for leftovers, too, of course! Originally featured in the Colorado Cache cookbook by the Junior League of Denver, from the La Bola restaurant. We eat it like a stew, with warm flour tortillas. Any pork will work.

      I lost my Colorado Cookbook in a fire, so I am very thankful to find this excellent recipe again. I use pork tenderloin instead of a pork shoulder. this will cut the calories and the fat! It is delicious in and over Burritos. I am sure it will be one of your favorite recipe's if you love Mexican! :)
