We typically buy large center cut pork loins when they are on sale. This saves us a lot of money and produces a lot of pulled pork for us to use. Sometimes we cook the pork and use it all up, or other times we freeze the leftovers to use it later. I am always coming up with different ways to use the pork so we don’t get tired of it, and this is quite possibly my favorite way.

Pork Chili Verde is a warm and comforting meal with a combination of spicy, savory, creamy, and fresh flavors. The chili comes together very quick with previously cooked pork, is super healthy and packed full of protein! I like the ‘semi-homemade’ approach to cooking, because it tastes authentic, but is made fast. I am able to save time but still maximize flavor by using a jar of authentic salsa verde, which gives the taste of jalapenos, garlic, and tomatillos! Next time you see pork loins on sale, try this recipe out! You won’t be disappointed, promise!
