Well, Chili Verde
(green chili) is made with white meat (chicken breast or pork) instead of beef, tomatillos instead of tomatoes, green chilies (Anaheim, Serrano, Poblano, Jalapenos), chicken stock/broth and flavorings (cumin, oregano, garlic, cilantro, roasted coriander seeds, black pepper) - no chili powder.
If you could explain what you mean by Americanized
I might be able to help find a specific recipe for you - I know of several good recipes that don't include cactus, corn, lima beans, etc. But, about the only thing I can think of off the top of my head to Americanize it would be to add some American cheese slices, or a dollop of Cheeze Whiz, when you make your buttiro.
