We all love Mexican food, chili Verde has been a favorite for topping enchiladas for me, but I have given up pork so I am grateful to find this recipe.  Got an hour of time?  This will be a great addition to your meals, thanks to for sharing this picture and article.  You can adjust the chicken to be less if you use less meat in your meals.
