    Get rid of a lot of fat by not adding the 4 Tbsp. of canola oil and cooking it in the crockpot. still tender and much healthier! Just throw it all in and go. Serve with either rice OR beans (probably not both) and a salad or other fresh veggies. - 3/25/09

    My husband doesn't eat meat, so I subbed the pork for Boca burger crumbles and added a can of pinto and kidney beans to make it hearty. I also on put in 2 Tbls of oil, so we cut the fat content way down. But a great recipe! - 3/27/09

    I love Chili Verde! Good on eggs or by itself. I normally use Rotel tomatoes and no other tomato sauce. Easy to make. I just simmer mine down rather than adding flour to thicken. Very tender. - 3/25/09

    Adjust the recipe by skipping the "fry the fat" part and enjoy. You could also do like I do and let the finished product chill in the fridge to skim off any remaining fat. That way this great recipe is now much leaner and more healthful. Bon Apetite! - 3/25/09

    Why don't you just spray the pan with Pam or equivalent instead of using 500 calories worth of added fat and then using the fat in the meat? Sounds way to greasy for my body to handle. - 3/25/09

    The best chilies to use are Pueblo, CO green chilies or Hatch's New Mexico green chili frozen roasted and can be sent to you by ordering on line. I LOVE green chili. - 11/7/09

    If one serving of this is over 300 calories, and it is served with beans, rice, and tortillas...well, that would be way over my calorie quota for one meal! - 3/25/09

    Not that this has anything to do with the recipe, but isn't "chili verde" "green chili"--this would be just like any tomato based chili, wouldn't it? - 1/29/13

  • Tweaking it a bit but have the pork loin on now in the crockpot. No flour, oil, or tomato sauce. Using canned tomato wchilies. We like our chilie a lil thicker than usual. Will add a lil water. - 6/13/10

    This dish sounds so delish but unfortunately the fat grams go beyond my allowable grams per day. I will try without cooking the fat, and then putting in fridge and skimming any add'l fat off as someone suggested. Thanks for the ideas! we LOVE spicy here - 3/30/09

    How big is the pork loin? Is it the prepackaged one?
    If you chill the recipe, then skim off any fat the next day and then serve it - less calories and intensified flavor.
