“This came from chowhound. I used less cinnamon. Below is the original recipe. This can be made in the crock as well. I know most verdes don't include potatoes but this was so good. This dish is always a big hit. It’s great rolled into a burrito, but you can also serve it on its own topped with scallions, sour cream, and tortilla chips. What to buy: You can find Aleppo pepper at most gourmet grocery stores or online at the Spice House. If you are having a hard time locating it, use ancho chile powder. Game plan: Chile verde was destined to be a party dish because you can make it way ahead of the festivities and just warm it over medium-low heat when you are ready to eat.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pat chicken dry with paper towels, toss with flour, shake off excess, and season generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add 1/3 of the chicken and sauté, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a Dutch oven or a large, heavy-bottomed pot with a tight fitting lid. Repeat with remaining chicken.
  2. In the same frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and sauté until soft, about 5 minutes. Add mixture to the pot containing the chicken. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the same frying pan over medium-high heat. Add Anaheim chiles and poblanos and sauté until tender, about 4 minutes. Transfer to the pot containing the chicken.
  3. Add chicken broth, potatoes, tomatillos, oregano, Aleppo pepper, cumin, paprika, and cinnamon stick to the pot. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until mixture thickens and potatoes are tender, about 1 1/2 hours.
  4. Stir cilantro into mixture. Transfer to a large serving bowl.
