Make It Monday - Chile Verde


Photobucket
My brother in law is Hispanic. He's quite the character and always keeps our family laughing and smiling. We just love him, and he's an awesome father and wonderful husband to my sister in law Lindsay. He also cooks some amazing authentic Mexican food! He shared this recipe with Mr. H and I a few years ago and we have it every once in a while. I added a few things to it, but this is pretty much his recipe. Last night we dined on this pot of deliciousness, complete with rice and tortillas. I hope you try it out and enjoy it as much as we do here at the H house!

1 large Pork Roast, trimmed and diced
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
