Slow Cooker Chile Verde

Chile Verde has been one of my favorite Mexican dishes for as long as I can remember. I always thought it would be a more involved recipe, but surprisingly it’s not! After simmering in the slow cooker all day, your house will smell delicious and you will have a healthy and hearty meal ready to serve. I hope you enjoy this as much as my family and I did!


Quick tip: Pork shoulder can also be used instead of pork roast- I think it’s more flavorful but it is fattier.
