Bootleg Pork Chili Verde is one of my favorite lazy dinners. Throw everything in the slow cooker, let it cook all day long, then shred and serve with whatever you fancy. I like to wrap up the pork in a warm tortilla with sour cream. Rice and beans on the side, sometimes rolled up into the burrito.
I call this “bootleg” because that is my favorite phrase, coined by my brother Jimmy, for when something isn’t actually homemade or legit. This recipe is completely delicious, and also completely bootleg.
Check out those ingredients down there: an onion, pork shoulder, salt and pepper to taste, jarred salsa verde! The nerve! If you have a favorite salsa verde recipe, please use it in place of my sad jarred variety. If you like the idea of a dump it and forget it dinner, then go out and get yourself a jar of Herdez salsa verde. Trader Joe’s has a good one, too.
The smell of this bootleg pork chili verde simmering all day long will fill your home with aromas of dinner that will make the entire family eager to eat.
What is your favorite “throw it all together and walk away” dinner?
