TayTay’s Bacon Green Chile (Croc Pot!) 



  • 2# Diced Pork Shoulder 
  • 1-1.5# Fresh Tomatillos (small dice)
  • 1 Yellow Onion (small dice) 
  • 2 Jalapeños (small dice) 
  • 5 Cloves garlic (minced) 
  • 1 T dried cilantro 
  • 2 t salt
  • 2t pepper 
  • 2 T Cumin 
  • 1t chipolte chili powder 
  • 1 T dried oregano 
  • 1- 27oz can died green chilies
  • 1/2 Cooked and diced bacon (about 6-8 strips) 
  • 1/4 c Bacon fat (from pan you cook bacon on)
  • 3 cups beef broth (low sodium… so you can control the salt!)


1- Set oven to 375F. Then pull out your Croc Pot (YAY for croc pot season!). 

2- Line a baking sheet with foil and bake your bacooooon in the preheated oven for about 15-20min. Just get it nice and crispy. 

3- While the bacon is cooking knock out all of your chopping (onions/tomatillos/jalapeños/garlic). Throw all of these veggies into your croc pot… you will need a pretty large one! 

4- Next, you will need to measure out all of the dry spices (cilantro/oregano/salt/pepper/cumin/chipolte chili powder)… DON’T precisely measure each one! That will take forever. Eye ball it… Trust me.. it will be ok! 

5- Dump your not so perfectly measured spices into the croc pot, along with the veggies!

6- At this point your bacon should be close to ready… be careful not to burn it! That is a crime. Let it cool for a little bit once you take it out. 

7- Now chop up your pork into small (nickel sized) pieces, and add it all to the croc. 

8- Now its time to add everything else (including the bacon!) into the croc pot. Mix in the can of green chilies, 1/4c bacon fat (left-over from the pan you cooked it on), chopped bacon, and beef broth! 

9- Now, set your croc to low… and let the magic happen for 8-10 hours. The closer to 10 hours you can get it, the more delicious it will be! 

10- This makes a lot of chili… Soo be sure to have friends over to help you eat it or pack what you don’t get to in the freezer! This freezes super well.
