Ashley’s Chile Verde – a deliciously spicy chile verde sauce served over cauliflower rice!

Chile Verde Sauce – Serves 6

What you’ll need:

5-6 tomatillos (pronounced toe-ma-tee-ohs), husks removed
1 New Mexico chile or poblano
1 tomato (Optional. If not using, add 1-2 more New Mexico or Poblano chiles will make it a more vibrant green)
2-3 small jalapenos or 1 large
1-2 Serrano chiles (the more, the spicier)
1 onion
3-4 garlic cloves, unpeeled
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 1/2 pounds chicken, cut into bite sized pieces (Pork is yummy too!)
3 tablespoon oil (I used coconut oil)

How to make it:

1.  Preheat over to 450.
2.  Roast the veggies for 15 minutes. Remove from oven.
3.  Peel your garlic.
4.  Remove stems and seeds from chiles depending on how spicy you want it. The more seeds you leave, the spicier it will be.
5.  Process in a food processor or blender with the salt and set aside.
6.  Add the oil in a large pan with a lid on med/high heat. Add the meat and par cook  (partially cook to seal in the juices) for about 5-7 minutes.
7.  Pour salsa over the meat and stir to incorporate. Bring to a bubble. Cover, and reduce heat, simmering for 20 -25 minutes until meat is cooked and tender.

3.  Add onions and cook until soft and transparent, about 3-4 minutes.
