“The flavor of this Verde would challenge my much longer version, any day. It's important to note that I only make it with the brands listed, so I can't guarantee equally delicious results with other brands. According to my guests and family, this is the best Chili Verde, ever. I hope you'll try it..”

  1. In a large pot, add 3 Tbs. olive oil. Saute' onion till transparent, add garlic and saute' 1 min, being careful to not brown the garlic.
  2. Add the meat to the pot, and saute' until it looses color. It will release some liquid. Add the canned ingredients, along with the wine, cumin and salt.
