Expert Tips

If you want your chili to be thicker, add 1-2 tablespoons of corn flour after adding the chicken broth.

Directions

  • 1 Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.
  • 2 Add the pork and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the cumin, cilantro powder, and cayenne pepper; mix and continue cooking until the pork is slightly browned on all sides, about 10-15 minutes. Remove pork from the pot and set aside.
  • 3 Reduce to medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, coriander, and roasted chili peppers to the same pot; sauté until vegetables are cooked, about 3-5 minutes.
  • 4 Add the pork, tomatillo, and chicken broth to the vegetables in the pot. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and cover. Cook until meat is tender, about 30-40 minutes.
  • 5 Uncover and let it cook for 15 more minutes, or until liquid is slightly reduced.
  • 6 Serve with tortillas.

Today, I want to share with you a recipe I only learned a little while ago: Colorado Green Chili! The first time I tried this chili was at a friend's house and I was immediately hooked. It's delicious, a bit spicy, and has a slightly thick texture, which makes it completely irresistible. My friend taught me how to make it the traditional way, but I experimented with the recipe until I came up with a version that's quick and easy and will save you time in the kitchen. Enjoy!
