This recipe is a go-to for my family, even if my 3-year-old complains about the spice a bit. We all have to deal with hardship in life. We love it because it’s simple and you can let it simmer all day without messing it up too bad—not to mention, you can use the leftovers for some pretty great enchiladas.
Wild pig chile verde is also a great teacher. If you’re new to cooking wild game, it’s a great way to get used to the taste of wild game because the strong Mexican flavors will mask even the gamiest of old boars and it also serves a great introduction to cooking big chunks of meat. Long story short, if anyone’s ever told you that you can’t eat wild pigs, slide a plate of chile verde their way and they’ll be too busy eating to tell you why.
