Walk into almost any taqueria in this country and you will find CHILE VERDE on the menu. The chile will likely be made with chunks of pork shoulder, slow cooked in a green chile sauce. It’s a favorite filling for burritos and tacos. We eat it on its own with bread. Yes, we use the bread to scoop all the sauce at the end until we clean the plate. :)

This recipe is made with our Mexico City cooking sauce that is made with tomatillos and arbol peppers. This slow cooker recipe will blow your mind!
