Colorado Green

When it comes to making a pot of green there is much new under the sun. Chilies, onion, broth, pork and so forth. This recipe has a twist, well you'll see.

Start with assembling the ingredients:

42 oz of home made chicken broth (not yougurt or guak :lol: ), Cilantro, Oregano, garlic, white onion, pork, Hatch and Pasilla chilies, yellow bell pepper.

Chicken broth into the crock pot.
2 TBSP cumin into the crock pot.

Fire roasted the Hatch and Pasillas:

Gave them a course chop and into the crock pot

This is where twist comes in. Next I husked the Tomatillos (a pounds worth), cut out the stem and dry roasted in a cast iron (low heat) for about 25 minutes turning every 3 minutes or so. The photo is about 15 minutes in.

Then I gave them a rough chop and into the crock pot.

The Mrs isn't much on onions so I either have to give them a fine dice (so see won't see 'em :wink: ) of leave them big enough for her to fish out. I used a half and onion with a radial cut. Into the crock pot along with two whole cloves of garlic.

Next I cored and de-seeded the bell pepper, Course chop and into the pot.
Fine chopped one half a bunch of cilantro and into the pot.
1 Tsp oregano into the crock pot.

Next up a browned the pork (1.8#) and added it to the crock.

Give all a good stir.

I'll check for heat level in a few hours. If too mild, that's the SB Chipotle Texas Dynamite will come into play.

I got a feeling its going to be smothered burritos tonight.

I'm a Big fan of the Verde and that is some good looking Verde Dave. I always put tomatillos in mine too.
