Chili Verde

I had a request for the chili verde recipe so here it is, please note I did can mine but this is not a proven recipe.  I tend to like my food to be a bit spicy so feel free to half the spices taste and add more as needed.

1 T olive oil
1 t. dried oregano
1 T ground cumin
3 T chili powder
1 (19oz) can of green enchilada sauce
32oz diced tomatoes with juice
1 cup hot salsa verde
2 cups finely chopped onions
2 T pressed fresh garlic
2 pounds diced green chilies (fresh or frozen)
1 t lime juice
1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro
1 whole chicken cooked and shredded

Cook onions and garlic until onions are translucent, add tomatoes and salsa verde.  Stir well then add the green chilies and enchilada sauce.  Once combined add spices and stir well then add shredded chicken.  Simmer for 30 minutes serve garnished with cilantro and lime.  This can be served over rice or eaten with a bit of cheese and tortilla chips.


I used a rotisserie chicken in this recipe and it was still delicious.  I also bought the small cans of green chilies and they tasted fine in the recipe (I believe Walmart sells the 1 pound cans).
