 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2  Lb.           tomatillas*
    1 1/2  Lb.           pork
    4      Cloves        garlic
      1/4  Tbsp.         granulated -- (1/4 to 1/2)
    1      Medium        sized onion
    1      Can           diced green chiles -- (6 oz.)
                          -- (mid-heat range)
      1/2  C.            peanut oil
    3                    medium-sized jalapeno chili
    4      Tbsp.         flour
    4      C.            chicken broth
    1      Tsp.          cumin or to taste
 * If you do not have fresh tomatillos available you can
 substitute any of the green taco sauces which are made from
 tomatillos. Fresh tomatillos are best. Be careful not to use
 too much of the prepared green chili sauce as it is generally
 hot and will detract from the flavor of the chili verde.
 Cut pork into bite-size pieces and saute on low heat
 until browned in 1/4 cup peanut oil. In processor blend
 tomatillas, onion, garlic cloves, 1/4 cup oil, jalapeno peppers
 and diced green chilies until smooth. (Note: deseed the
 jalapeno peppers unless you desire extremely hot chili.) Add
 chicken broth to pork and continue to simmer over medium heat.
 Add tomatillo/chili mixture to broth and pork. When chili
 verde mixture has simmered for approximately 1 hour at medium
 heat (just enough to bubble, but not boil), add flour thickener
 mixture and blend well. (Note: Flour thickener may be made
 with 1 cup of water, add flour and mix well to dissolve lumps
 or use roux mixture if available.)
 If mixture has condensed (not enough chili sauce) add
 more water or chicken broth to desired consistency. If mixture
 does not “set up,” add cornstarch, 1 teaspoon to 1/4 cup water
 at a time until mixture is of desired consistency. Fifteen
 minutes prior to serving, add garlic granules, salt, black or
 white pepper and cumin to taste.
 Bon Appetit, Amigos!!!!
