A New Mexican Green

Good eating
• Use to make the best burritos – flour tortilla, cheese, roll and enjoy.
• Bowl of green with corn bread or hot corn tortillas – simply the best.
• Layer corn tortillas with chili and cheese, bake for 15 minutes.
• Serve ice on the side, you may need it."

Ingredients

Meat Mixture
2-3 pounds Boston pork butt well trimmed
Cut meat into 1/2-inch cubes [or what ever!].
Brown diced meat in large skillet [4 batches] on high heat.
Add lemon pepper (2 TBS); Cumin (1TBS); salt if you want
Dump mixture into a big crock-pot or simmering pot.

Sauce
In large skillet or Dutch oven heat 1/4 cup olive or canola oil.
Sauté 1-2 medium diced sweet onion and 4-10 garlic cloves (leave whole).
Add 2 cups diced tomatoes and 2 cups diced green New Mexican chili.
Cook stirring constantly for 3-5 minutes.
Add one bottle of beer; dark is best
Simmer 10-20 minutes and then add to the pot [meat mixture just covered, if not add little water or beer].


Instructions

Slow cooking
Cook 3-4 hours at 300 degrees or even slower over night in a crock pot [the smell of chili will waft through your house forcing you to sneak a bite first thing in the morning].
Skim off all the fat.
