Pulled Pork Green Chilli

I made 40 Pounds of Pulled Pork for a friend of mines Birthday Party on Friday night. Well needless to say only 30 Pounds was consumed so I had 10 Pounds left over.

I was torn for what to cook tonight Pork Tamales, Pork Enchiladas. The Wife sugested My famous Green Chilli, and to be honest I dont have a recipe. I go the standard route with Tomatillos, Tomatoes, Onion, Garlic, Cumin, Hatch Chillis, Chicken Broth and such.

Usually when I do my Green I get a nice Broth going. This time with the smoked pull pork added it thickened it up and really changed the color.

To be Honest the flavor was incredible, it was a great Smoked Flavor Green Chilli. I will do it again.

Also Dont Judge me on some of the Pork missing.

  • Can you give an idea of process? I'll make tomorrow

    I used half an onion and 5 Garlic cloves sauted in till golden brown.

    6 Cans Chicken Broth

    7 Tomitillos

    4 Tomatoes

    4 Roasted Hatch Chillis

    Spices to your Chilli Liking (Cumin, Pepper, Red Pepper)

    I halved the Tomatoes and Tomatillos, once they were boiling I removed them and put them in a food processor.

    Add as much pork as you like.

    I cooked on the egg for almost 5 hours around 325. When the sauce cooked down I would add water and some Beer and keep repeating the process (Some people might disagree on this but I like to cook my chilli for a long time and this extends the process).

  • Thanks for the recipe, going to try this next time I do pulled pork.  I live in Pennsylvania not sure if it'll be hard to find hatch chiles and tomatillos

    I live in Pa., too. Tomatillos, easy. Hatch, unavailable now (and hard to get in season). If you don't like it very spicy, use fresh poblano. A little spicer, use serano. A little more, jalapeno. You need to roast and peel them.
