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 is my absolute favorite chile recipe ever. My husband actually requests this meal! I definitely add more/various types of beans to the recipe and use more salsa verde because I like it spicy. Overall, this recipe rocks!


This was so good. Thanks so much. My next time making this I'm gonna add a little more heat to it. :)


This recipe is easy to make, freezes well and tastes great. We love it!!


One of the best chili's I have had! My fiance has asked for it again this week.

I too never post comments or reviews but had to share my enthusiasm for this recipe. It is simply delicious!!!! Definitely best chili I've ever tasted but also one of the best meals I've ever had! I make it with ground lean turkey, to make it even healthier and I love love the flavor. The green enchilada sauce definitely complements the ground turkey. Instead of putting a dallop of sour cream, I put greek plain yogurt instead which makes it yet another step healthier. During the fall/winter months, I make this at the beginning of the week and divide it into Tupperware for lunches at work. I always look forward to my lunch, unlike other days when I pack sandwiches or chicken dishes that dry out after microwaving.
