Pork Chili Verde

I love love Mexican food!  I especially love me some smothered bean and cheese burritos!  That is always my go to Mexican dish at any restaurants.  I have been on the hunt for quite some time to find the perfect Pork Chili Verde sauce!  Well we can all stop looking now…just in case you were looking!

We had some down time at work the other day and we were deciding on where we wanted to order for lunch.  We started talking about Mexican food and got on the talk of who had the best Pork Chili Verde smothered burritos.  Well ladies this day changed my life not only did I get to have one for lunch I also got one of the best homemade Pork Chili Verde recipes from my co-worker.  Well I put this recipe to the test and I completely fell in love with it.


Now the only thing I left to work on are those amazing thick flour tortilla’s that help make the amazing Smothered burrito!   For this recipe I did use my own homemade re-fried bean recipe smothered the inside with cheese and sauce and rolled nice and tight and repeated the yumminess with more verde and more cheese!


Pork Chili Verde
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 2 lb Pork tenderloin, bite size
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 Tbsp Minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 cups water, cold
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 small can diced green chilies
  • 2 8 oz cans salsa verde
  • 1 can enchilada sauce
  • 1 can refried beans
  1. Lightly brown pork with onion, garlic and olive oil (it's okay if its not completely cooked). Add in 2 cups of water and cook on medium heat. In a small cup add the ½ cup water and cornstarch together, adding to the pork. In your crockpot add; salsa verde, enchilada sauce, refried beans, and chicken broth. Then add in your pork. Mix all together and cook on low for 4-6 hours or high for 2-3 hours.
  2. Pour over bean burritos and cover in cheese.
This recipe makes a lot and you can't really half the recipe. So I stored it in freezer safe containers to have on hand for a busy night!

Trying add these to help make your meal a little more complete:

Homemade refried beans!  Trust me these taste so much better then the can.


Let’s not forget about the guacamole!!  The next best thing at a Mexican restaurant

  12. This looks SO scrumptious :)

  13. This looks wonderful! Thank you for linking it up Friday at our Weekend Social on Kitchen Dreaming! We hope to see you again this week! :)

  14. I made this this morning, and man does it smell good cooking right now! I feel like now that it’s all said and done and in the pot, I should ask… When adding the pork to the crockpot, do you include the water it’s cooking in? It doesn’t really say, so I added it all to the pot. It smells amazing, I’m just hoping it won’t taste watered down?

    • Sorry, I just saw this! Yes you do add the water with it. I’m sure you could do a little less water if wanted. Still has lots of flavor just be a little thicker. did you and your family like it?

  15. Brittany, planning on making these this week for dinner… it all looks absolutely divine! Sharing on G+ and pinning. Thank you for sharing this Mexican treat with all of us at the Show Stopper party! Love it!

  20. This was SO yummy! It tasted just like La Frontera Mexican restaurant in Utah.
    I’m saving this one for my recipe book. Thanks for sharing 💕
    P.s. It doesn’t say when to add the green chilies so I dumped them in the pork mixture.
