Green Chile Taco Recipe

This green chile taco recipe is hands down my easiest recipe and with minimal  ingredients. This is a go-to on a busy night when I want to use my crock-pot. It is also a favorite among people in my circle. Ha! My circle? I didn’t realize I had a circle – the new Google+ must be getting in my head.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 4-6 hours

Green Chile Taco Recipe


  • 3+ pounds boneless beef chuck roastgreen chile taco
  • 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)
  1. Place your chuck roast in your crock-pot.
  2. Season with salt and pepper only. I occasionally use a meat tenderizer, but generally I do nothing to the hunk of meat.
  3. Pour jar of green salsa  Verde  over roast in crock-pot.
  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 be totally emerged in the sauce, so I will add extra enchilada sauce if need be.
  5. On top of the salsa and sauce mixture I add the green chile’s  and raw diced onion.
  6. Cover with lid and cook for 4-6 hours.
You want your meat to be falling apart. Separate meat with fork and knife if needed. I usually place some of the meat in a bowl and pour sauce over it to serve.

Serve with:

  • Tortillas
  • Sour cream
  • Diced onions
  • Sliced avocado
  • Monterrey  Jack cheese or preferred shredded cheese

Note: Sour cream compliments the green chile  very well.

I like to pour extra sauce over my meat.

I also want to note that all of the above ingredients can be modified to preference.

This is not a spicy dish as the green chile is the one of the milder of sauces.

I like to serve these tacos with mexican-style pinto beans (slow cooked on a Sunday afternoon) and mexican cornbread. Yum!



  1. This would be yummy with chicken too! I can’t wait to try it!

  2. I have never tried it but totally agree that would be just as great. Let me know what you think.
