I did not think this had enough ingredients or seasonings to be very flavorful. Wrong! I did substitute Hatch chilis for the Anaheims so it was considerably zippier but it was deserving of the recipe name. I made wet burritos with the chile, using the chunks of meat and hominy on the inside and pouring some of the sauce on the outside. A sprinkle of crumbled cotija and these were sensational.
New Mexican Chile Verde
This light-bodied bowl features fresh roasted Anaheim chiles, which are moderately spicy. Spike it with hot sauce, if you like more fire.
