Slow Cooker Green Pork Chili

Recipe provided by Cecilia J. "Perfect for those cold winter months. The cilantro and chopped leaks are optional, but it’ll taste even better if you add them!"


  • Dry Great Northern Beans
  • No-salt-added chicken stock (6 cups)
  • 1 jar salsa verde, 1 1/2 cups
  • Ground cumin, 1 TBS
  • Kosher salt, 1 Tsp
  • Black pepper, 1 Tsp

  • Uncooked pork tenderloin or chicken breast, 2 lbs (2 – 1 lb tenderloins, each cut crosswise)
  • Cilantro leaves, 1/2 cup (optional, but good)
  • Chopped leaks (optional, but good)


  1. Wash and par-boil beans for 30 mins. Rinse with cold water to remove bubbles.
  2. Rub pork loin with garlic, salt and pepper. Place in slow cooker
  3. Add all remaining ingredients EXCEPT a few leaves of Cilantro for garnish.
  4. Add enough water to cover beans.
