New This Month

Whether you use a slow cooker or the oven, you'll be rewarded with tender meat and deep flavor. If you have New Mexico or Anaheim chiles, swap 5 or 6 for the poblanos.

    I didn't find it greasy at all, but I did trim off the biggest chunks of fat from the pork shoulder and followed the instruction to skim off the fat. We loved it! I have trouble finding slow cooker recipes that use real food and aren't bland, so this was a great find.

    Other than the rather confusing title, this recipe wasn't bad. I will say I added chili powder and red pepper flakes, but the meat turned out really nice and tender. The cilantro and lime was perfect to add for serving.

    This recipe is absolutely awful. The end result is a greasy pork stew (definitely not a chili) that is devoid of flavor and body, let alone aesthetic appeal. The amount of doctoring you need to do to make this an enjoyable meal is just not worth it. Move along to something else and save yourself.
