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...

I made this for dinner and we thought it was great. I realized into cooking it I had no chili powder so omitted that ingredient and it was still great! I used the green taco sauce. I served it with tortillas, grated cheese, sour cream, guacamole and regular salsa.

Loved this!!! Very easy to make & had a great spicy flavor. I added some crushed tortilla chips to each bowl. Will definitely make this again!

This is fantastic, quick and easy to do after work or anytime. I kicked it a notch a 4 oz. can of diced jalapenos and two cans of beans, pinto and black. Mmmmmmm, and it's lo-Cal.

I love when healthy recipes are delicious, and this one was! Very easy and quick. Under 40 minutes from start to finish including a quick healthy cornbread from scratch. The nutritional analysis states a serving has 516 mg sodium, but if sodium intake isn't an issue for you, I would suggest a bit of salt to season the ground beef.
