  • 4 sections garlic - minced
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 tbsp salt (sounds like a lot - it''s not)
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 onion - sliced in thin vertical wedges
  • 1 can tomatillos cut up (or 1 16 oz can diced tomatoes)
  • 4 small cans green chili (chopped
  • 1 small can or 4-5 fresh jalapeno (chopped )
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 to 2 cup flour


  1. In a sauce pan: place pork, garlic and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, turn to low and simmer until meat is tender. Drain, rinse and set aside.
  2. In a large pot set on medium-high, place water, cumin and salt. Bring to a boil. Turn down heat, simmer.
  3. In a microwave heat proof container (I use Pyrex measuring cup) melt shortening. While hot, whisk in enough flour to make a smooth semi-thick paste. (The thicker you make this, the thicker your chili will be.)
  4. Turn the burner down to medium-low. Using the whisk, add the flour/shortening mixture to pot of seasoned water. Whisk until smooth. From now on, stir frequently from the bottom of the pot - LOW heat only.
  5. Add sliced onion to pot - stir.
  6. Add tomatoes and/or tomatillos to pot - stir.
  7. Add green chili and jalapenos to pot - stir.
  8. Add drained meat to pot - stir.
  9. Heat through and serve - as a dip, as a sauce over burritos, tamales, etc., or in a bowl with a spoon.
  10. This does NOT freeze well.
