Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (520 votes)

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.



READER'S COMMENT:
"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...

Delicious

It was fantastic!! While cooking the beef, onions, and bell pepper, I added about 2 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce to make it more flavorful. Smelled and tasted great. I also added a small can (4 tbsp) of tomato paste, and about 2 tbsp of chile-garlic sauce to the recipe. Everyone loved it.

I never had salsa verde before, but it was very good.

Excellent, but be careful of the sodium content

First, I really enjoyed this recipe and served it with a 1/2 cup of quinoa (with a squeeze of lime), like the EatingWell diet menu suggested. It was quick and easy to make and I loved the flavor.
However, I used a separate recipe calculator to determine the nutrition facts based on 90%-lean ground beef and found that the bottled salsa verde I used drastically increased the sodium content of the meal (~500mg increased to ~1600mg). When I make this in the future, I'll use a homemade recipe for salsa verde to cut back on the sodium content.

Quick, Easy, Tasty

yum!

i made this last night for the first time and it was soo delicious! I replaced the ground beef with ground chicken and used a fresh red salsa as i couldn't get salsa verde at my grocery store, but it was still amazing!

Great simple chili!

I love spice and in the future would use some hot peppers and hot salsa... but otherwise, this recipe is great! No hassle and just delicious! I looked forward every day to eating the leftovers :)
