I know you might be wondering, "what do you mean chicken chile verde?" Of course pork is the traditional way to make chile verde; but you see, my aunt Brilla, with whom I'm extremely close, doesn't eat pork. For this reason alone, a long time ago, I decided to make this dish with chicken so my lovely tía could partake in the fun that is eating chile verde. In fact, she became so addicted to it that I now have to put it in a jar with ice packs and mail it to her to San Francisco!
At first most people I told I was making chile verde with chicken were up in arms and didn't understand why I would do this sort of thing. But let me tell you that as soon as they tasted it, opinions quickly shifted! "You can't even tell the difference" or " I think I like it better!" These are some of the statements that I hear when I make it. My secret? The green sauce.Oh, and it needs to be eaten off a corn tortilla as a taco!
