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...

This makes quite a bit...I thought for sure I would have left overs...NOPE! Everyone ate it up even my dad who usually doesn't like spicy food...the flavor is delicious and its very simple to new favorite!


THE BEST CHILI ever!!!!!!!!!!!
I made this a week or so ago-- and everyone loved it. I changed up somethings and sorta doubled the recipe. I ended up using a GREEN SALSA and adding a can of diced tomatos, among other things. BUT it was thick and filling- A GREAT MEAL! I just served with cornbread... but many ate it with chips! I can not stress enough how GREAT this recipe is!!!


My husband and I both love this recipe! I have made it multiple times and double the batch. I never write a comment on things (that tells you how much I like this recipe!). I as well use ground turkey & extra chili pepper and crushed red pepper flakes. Oh and an extra can of the beans! Very tasty!


This was really good. I used ground turkey instead of beef to lower the calories even more, and then I used my own salsa made from rotel, cilantro, jalepeno's, and onion. Very tasty and has stayed with me!


Loved it! Next time I will double the recipe.
