CHILI VERDE (GREEN)

15 Feb
Okay, Just got a taste for this and I gotta make it. It’s pretty simple and you can use it for use it in a tortilla if you throw a little more  cornmeal
.
.
olive oil – extra virgin  that is the only kind you should have
3 lb  pork shoulder – cubed into bite size pieces .   HERE is a note  for you.   DO NOT BUY A PACKAGE OF STEW MEAT  – you don’t know what you’re getting,   buy a whole piece of meat and cut it up yourself .  This way you know exactly what you have and you can control the amount of fat you want in the dish.   This goes for beef and also ground turkey.
With the turkey buy a breast and have the butcher grind it for you or mince it up yourself
Enough school back to the chili
