Verde chicken chili is a delicious slow cooker recipe that gets its flavor and color from green chilis and green enchilada sauce.
This verde chicken chili verde is a yummy and flavorful departure from traditional chili. A popular dish in Northern Mexico, chili verde is usually made with pork shoulder, but for those who prefer chicken, this recipe fits the bill.
I serve this with tortilla chips, shredded cheese, and sour cream for toppers. My kids love this and enjoy taking leftovers to school for lunch.
Fresh cilantro adds wonderful flavor. The best time to add fresh cilantro (or most fresh herbs) is the last hour or so of cooking time.
For a creamier chili, simply puree one of the cans of beans before adding to the recipe. Cornmeal can also be added to thicken, but it is easier to start off with less broth than correct a too thin chili.
Another yummy “verde” recipe is Pepper-jack Chicken Enchiladas with Salsa Verde. If going all out for a Mexican feast, a sure fire hit is this Chuy’s Inspired Jalapeño Ranch Dip. It makes a large amount and is not only great as a dip but also drizzled over nachos, enchiladas, or taco salad.
