Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (530 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...

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.

This tasted so good, but I bought the green jalepeno salsa by mistake. this really makes it to spicy to eat for most people, I managed a few bites, my kids couldn't eat it at all. So be careful and pay attention to what salsa you get 16 oz of jalepenos is really to much!

I am obsessed with eating well's recipes. This one was middle of the road, however. Granted, I used ground turkey instead of beef and didn't have taco sauce so I used pico de gallo. I also added two diced summer squashes. I probably won't make this again.
