Camp Recipes: Pork Chili Verde

Pork Chili Verde in the Dutch Oven


  • .5 - .75 lbs of Pork Chops, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/4 lb Ground Beef
  • .5 - 1 T Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Onion, chopped
  • 1 - 2 Cloves of Garlic, minced
  • 6 oz. Green Chilis, chopped
  • 1 can Stewed Tomatoes - we like the Mexican seasoned tomatoes (14.4 oz)
  • 1 or 2 Jalepenos (chopped - keep the seeds if you like it spicy)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Hot Sauce to taste (optional)
  • Cheese (optional)
  • Tortillas (Any kind - we used whole wheat, but flour would be great, too)


  1. Stoke up a fire and get plenty of coals burning.
  2. Place the Dutch oven on the coals. Add the olive oil. Once hot, add the pork chops and ground beef. Cook until just browned.
  3. Mix in the onion, jalepeno(s),garlic and allow them to saute for a few minutes. Add in the green chilis and stewed tomatos. Mix well.
  4. This dish is really flavorful but not too spicy, so add in a few dashes of hot sauce if you want to spice it up.
  5. Cover with the Dutch oven lid. Bake 45 minutes using coals on the top and bottom (about 10 coals on bottom, 14 on top).
  6. Serve with warmed tortillas.
