Chile Verde, usually a slow-cooked stew of pork, jalapeños and tomatillos, becomes an easy weeknight meal with quick-cooking ground beef and store-bought green salsa. Make it a Meal: Serve with fresh cilantro, red onion and Monterey Jack. Add your favorite hot sauce.

"This recipe was great and so quick. I used 94% lean ground turkey, added some corn and also added a little tomato paste to thicken it up and give it some color. I only used an 8 oz jar of green taco sauce because I didn't realize it...

I would have to say this was AWESOME! I made it more as a soup, added a little more enchilada sauce, added cheese and sour cream to the top and then used a spoon and tortilla chips to eat it. Really good!


Good flavor. Had to add extra chili powder, some jalapeno and scotch bonnets. I used Desert Pepper rio salsa which has a great flavor. If you're wanting to eat it as chili and not taco filling I'd recommend adding another can of beans though. Also threw in some fresh corn.


Fantastic! Husband and kids loved it. They've asked me to make it a weekly meal. Used Trader Joe's Green Salsa, topped with cilantro and cheddar and served with warm tortillas.


this was delish! made just as the recipe states and added a can of black beans as well. herdez salsa verde is the best green salsa for the dish. don't listen to those negative reviews where they don't follow the recipe!

This dish was PERFECT! Hubby and I both loved it. I love black beans so I added a can of that too. The onions and peppers add freshness and are so yummy. I will make this again and again, it is the BEST dish I've made since I started cooking around 6 months ago.
