Two-fer Tuesday

I'm feeling really generous today, so I'm going to give you 2 recipes for the price of one today.  The first is, quite possibly, the easiest recipe I will ever share on this blog.  It's almost laughable.  But it's so delicious, you need to understand.

Slow Cooked pork in Green Chile sauce

 

You Need:

 

1 bottle of 505 green chile sauce (make sure you get this kind... it is the BEST)
1 2-ish pound pork loin
Cheese, Avocado, and/or Sour Cream

What you do:

Put the pork loin in the crock pot.
Dump green chile sauce all over pork loin.
Set crock pot to "high" for 5 hours.
Shred pork with 2 forks.
Serve garnished with cheese, avocado, and/or salsa.  If you aren't low-carb/paleo, I'm sure this would be great with tortillas.

And if that isn't yum-tastic enough for you...  this next one is a little more involved, but no less yummy.

Chicken Enchilada Stuffed Peppers


What you need:

1 bottle 505 green chile sauce (see why the two-fer?)
4 green bell peppers
Leftover chicken, 3-4 cups chopped (we used rotisserie)
8oz cream cheese
1 can of Rotel
Shredded Mexican blend cheese (I don't believe in measuring cheese.  You'll figure it out)

What you do:

Pre-heat your oven to 350.
In a bowl, mix cream cheese, rotel, chicken, and some of your cheese.  Mix it well, you don't want someone ending up with giant globs of cream cheese.
Cut your peppers in half like they're boats, and take out the membranes and seeds.  I took my stems off, too.  Put the peppers in an oiled baking dish.
Put your cheesy chicken mixture inside of the peppers.
Pour your green chile sauce all over those pretty peppers.
Put more cheese on top.
Let these suckers bake for 30-45 minutes, or until they're all melty, gooey, and tender.
Garnish with whatever you dang well choose, but make sure you hoard the leftovers for yourself!

Basically, this is my way of telling you all to go buy 505 green chile sauce.  They didn't pay me to say this, we just managed to finish off 2 bottles of the stuff in 3 days.  Yup, we're obsessed.  So what are you waiting for?  Go get some already!  Have a yummy day =)

  2. My heart breaks for these recipes, as they are slathered in cheese and I rarely am allowed to even have cheese in my house. This makes me so sad I could just weep. When we create our dual principalities, could we have a special cheese zone for all things cheesy and delicious? That way Michael doesn't have to come and visit and I'll get to be a glutton and stuff myself silly. Please? Oh pretty please? With cream cheese on top???
