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!
- 2 lb Pork tenderloin, bite size

- 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.

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