Green Chili Pork is an easy and tasty way to use pork in your kitchen.
With the addition of green chili salsa, you can make a really versatile dish in just under 30 minutes.
What cut of pork is best for this recipe?
I personally use pork tenderloin for this recipe because it’s easy and faster to cook than other cuts.
However, you could also use pork shoulder and cook it for a bit longer to get a tender consistency.
What do you serve with green chili pork?
The possibilities are endless. I like to make a big batch of this green chili pork and keep it handy for bowls, wraps, tacos and sandwiches.
One of my favorite ways to eat it is in a rice bowl with cilantro lime rice, pickled onions and avocado. Super easy to assemble and delicious for lunch or dinner.
Another favorite is to make it into a crunchy wrap. For that, I use low carb pita and stuff them with the pork, cheese, lettuce, tzatziki and pickled onion.
The one thing I love about green salsa is that it has mild heat and does not overpower the flavors of the dish. It enhances the flavor of the meats specially poultry.
Another way I love to use this meat is in nachos. Add a creamy cheese sauce and your favorite tortilla chips and you have a crow-pleaser snack in no time.
Also, if you visit Phoenix and want to eat an amazing green chili pork stew, I highly recommend you visit Salty Sow.

- in the same pot used for the pork, saute your onions in the olive oil until translucent for about 3 minutes
- Add the garlic cloves and saute for 1 more minute until fragrant
- add the salsa verde and the pork back to the pot
