My family and I are Mexican food fiends. So when I found this cookbook while on a recent vacation, I grabbed it. While I've yet to try out the other recipes, we've gotten hooked on the chile verde recipe.

If you're curious, check out what others have said about this book on Amazon.

What are the ingredients in the Chili Verde recipe, Deborah?

You don't violate copyright laws if you just list ingredients.

Is it made in a crockpot?

1 large onion
3 T. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. ground cumin
3 cloves of garlic, crushed
15 green chiles, roasted, peeled, seeded, and chopped

1 1/2 cups chicken stock
Sour cream

Sounds Good
Do you put the sour cream in after it has cooked?

Hi, mackeeg!

It's delicious. Yes, the sour cream goes on top or inside your burrito.

Hi, jkath!

You know, I looked at the avocados when I was in the store a bit ago. But I wasn't sure if my guests like them. I'm fixing this tomorrow for the 4th.

Thanks
What pork cut would work best for this?

You're welcome. I usually get the pre-cut cubed pork because it saves prep time. But it wasn't available tonight (blaming the holiday), so I got boneless chops instead. There's less fat, which may or may not be good for the overall taste.

Speaking of saving prep time, did you buy cans of green chilis? I love roasted chili peppers but find them a pain to prepare.

Most everyone I know loves perfectly ripe avocadoes. You could offer the slices on a platter (squeezed with a little lemon juice so they don't brown) and let those who love them help themselves.

The chili verde sounds great!
