Green Chile Taco Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make this easy taco recipe.

  • 3+ pounds boneless beef chuck roast
  • 1 jar (16 oz) green salsa (salsa verde)
  • 1-2 cans green enchilada sauce
  • 2 cans or 8oz of green chile’s  (can use more depending on preference)

DIRECTIONS TO MAKE green chile beef taco RECIPE

Step 1

Place your chuck roast in your crock-pot.

Step 2

Season with salt and pepper only. I occasionally use a meat tenderizer, but generally, I do nothing to the hunk of meat.

Step 3

Pour jar of green salsa  Verde over roast in crock-pot.

Step 4

Next, pour the green enchilada sauce over the roast and  Verde. At this point it may or may not cover the meat – I like the meat to totally emerge in the sauce, so I will add extra enchilada sauce if need be.

Step 5

On top of the salsa and sauce mixture, I add the green chile and raw diced onion.

Step 6

Cover with lid and cook for 4-6 hours.

If you want your meat to be falling apart, separate meat with a fork and knife. You can also place some of the meat in a bowl and pour sauce over.

Best serve with tortillas, sour cream, diced onions, sliced avocado, Monterrey Jack cheese, or preferred shredded cheese.

our experience making green chile beef taco recipe

This is not a spicy dish as the green chile is one of the milder of sauces. Also, the above ingredients can be modified to preference.

I like to serve these tacos with Mexican-style pinto beans, slow-cooked on a Sunday afternoon, and Mexican cornbread.

Yield: 3-4 servings
