Who doesn’t love a good smothered burrito? This is how you make one with leftover pork and a handful of cheater ingredients! This is certainly not your traditional pork chili Verde recipe, but it is quite tasty. The reason I don’t go traditional is that these take long enough, and I often can not find tomatillos where I live. And anyway, one of the ingredients I use has most of the traditional ingredients in it already!
That ingredient is salsa verde. It typically has onion. Cilantro, tomatillo, peppers – pretty much every traditional ingredient that goes in the blender when you make pork chili Verde. Mix this with some green enchiladas sauce, some fresh veggies, and some great seasonings, like your spicy Dan-O’s, and you get a great pork chili Verde for smothering burritos or enjoying as is!
So where I typically do things differently, is that I cook my pork in huge chunks. I remove it from the liquid and never return it. Instead, I just use the shredded pork for my burrito filling and smother it with the liquid. You can definitely return the pork to the liquid and it eat it as a soup, but no… you clicked on a burrito recipe and this is the way.
Serve your pork chili Verde burritos with rice and beans, and maybe a margarita! Enjoy.
