I had planned to make green chile Colorado this morning, but found that I was lacking most of the ingredients required. After playing 'I could substitute this' and 'I could use that instead', I realized that I had created a brand new recipe. Serve with warm tortillas, avocado, lettuce, tomato, and sour cream.

This turned out really good. I did make a couple of changes. Hubs is picky when it comes to tomatoes so I blended the can instead of leaving them in dice. My other change was with the rice. I didn't realize the only brown rice I had was minute rice and we know that wouldn't have stood up to the total cook time. I made it after the pork was done and mixed it in that way. I made burritos out of the filling and they were a huge hit. Read More

Way too much rice, seasonings didn't set right, wont be making this anytime soon. I made my own tomatillo sauce and used 4 cups plus 2 cups of water with 2 cups of rice and still was thick and clumpy. There's no marinade so the pork was tough and dry. I used and organic pork. What a waste of time energy and food. Read More
