Pork Green Chili (Colorado Style)

“I grew up in Colorado and so I grew up loving green chili! When I moved to North Carolina 4 years ago I was surprised and very disappointed to learn that NO ONE here had ever even heard of green chili. I have spent the last year going through different recipes, I think I have finally got it nailed through a great mix of about 6 of the recipes I tried. Jalapeños may be added to taste if you like the flavor. Chili can be served over any burritos, served as a dip with tortilla chips, or as a main course with warm tortillas. Recipe makes a lot but it freezes well so you can enjoy it for a few months without having to spend too much time cooking.”
