This Green Chile Pulled Pork & Pintos is incredibly easy to make, and a perfect “comfort food” meal for the cooler evenings in the Fall & Winter months. Serve over a large slice of cornbread and top with Cilantro-Lime Sour Cream (recipe below) to complete the dish.
1 bag Hurst’s Pinto HamBeens® (and included seasoning packet)
1 large yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
3 lb. pork shoulder/butt
12 oz. beer (pick your favorite, the alcohol will cook completely off)
5 cups water
2 tbsp. chili powder
1 tbsp. ground cumin
1 cup Salsa Verde (we used Herdez) + extra for topping if desired
(1) 4 oz. can diced green chiles
Salt and pepper to taste
Cilantro-Lime Sour Cream: (1) small bunch/hand full fresh cilantro leaves, Juice from 1 lime, 1/2 cup sour cream-- Combine the 3 ingredients in a blender or small Cuisinart. Blend for 30 seconds, keep chilled until serving.
This recipe would work with any of our HamBeens items that includes a "Ham Flavor" seasoning packet.
