January/February 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (547 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...

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!
