Chile Verde

This is my mom's recipe and she doesn't have measurements...she just dumps it in and makes it to taste how she likes it. I made it today and halved the recipe and used the following measurements (2 pork chops cubed, 4 small cans green chiles, 1 T chicken bullion, 1 bay leaf, 1/2 bunch cilantro, 1 can diced tomatoes and then I chopped up a fresh tomato and added it to it, 1 onion)

Chile Verde

Olive Oil
2 lb. pork, cubed
salt to taste
pepper to taste
green chiles (lots), chopped
2T chicken bullion
2 bay leaves
cilantro, chopped
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 onions, chopped
water to cover

Brown cubed pork and onions in olive oil until pork is cooked and onions are tender. Sprinkle a little flour (approximately 1/2 cup) over the pork and onion and cook to make a roux. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer. If it isn't thick enough add more flour that has been mixed with water until it reaches the desired thickness.

Serve with rice, warm tortillas, cheese, refried beans. It's yummy!
