Foodie Fridays!!! Pork Chile Verde

this is what it looked like after cooking 5-6 hours and adding the's more red than green bc of the tomatoes, but I think it will still taste good and only get better the longer it cooks.
Pork (I used 5 thick cut pork chops, but would normally use a pork roast if I had it in the freezer)
1-2 cans of salsa verde (or more if you like it spicier and saucier)
1/2 box of chicken stock or home made
1 onion sliced
1-3 gloves garlic smashed, grated or chopped
1 can diced tomatoes or fresh chopped if you cook this in tomato season
generous on the salt and pepper
taco seasoning, garlic and onion powder
fresh herbs (chives, cilantro, parsley, thyme, sage...whatever flavors you like to add to pork)
green onions sliced

if you want tacos...
corn tortillas
more salsa

Put pork in your crock pot and generously salt and pepper the meat. Add spices, sliced onion and garlic, add tomatoes, salsa and chicken stock. Cook for 5-6 hours on high (depending on how much pork you use, it could take longer.)
During the last hour, add fresh herbs and green onions. Shred or cut the pork into bite size pieces.

This is a shortcut version using canned salsa verde instead of roasting tomatillos, poblanos, Anaheims, jalapenos or whatever green chiles you would normally use!

Sounds delish. You could always use tomatillos if you wanted it to have more green than red. Either way, yum!!
