I am curious about this as well. Thanks for the ideas!

2 lbs. cubed pork, chicken or beef (we do pork)
2 12 oz. bottles of green taco salsa
1 14 oz. can black beans - drained
2 14 oz. can great northern beans - drained
1 14 oz. can kidney beans - drained
1 4oz. can chopped green chilies
Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours
Serve in flour tortillas with sour cream & cheese etc...

We are making this tonight, but I had a question about the green taco salsa. I found 3 different things when looking for this that I thought it could possibly be, but I wasn't sure. We found green taco sauce, green chile taco salsa, and then the green verde salsa. I wasn't sure what to use so I bought a bottle of green chile taco salsa, and a bottle of green verde salsa. Are either one of those correct, and if not, will they work?

I make my chili verde a little different, but any should work. I've used all different kinds of green sauce in mine. Salsa verde is what I usually use, but you really can't mess up chili verde. I usually add a pork gravy packet and some refried beans (makes it thicker like La Frontera) and a can of diced tomatoes. And omit the other beans. If cooking in crockpot I'd add refried beans and gravy packet toward the end so it doesn't stick.
I'll have to try it this way and see how it compares. I love chili verde!

I'm making this for dinner tonight!

(My family and I normally eat an extremely low sodium diet and rarely use canned foods and packaged foods. This recipe is good enough for us to make an exception. Both my husband AND my brother said that this roast was the best they'd ever had.)
This is our favorite! I use beef broth instead of chicken.

The first time I made it, it was so good. Then next time I made it, it was so salty we could hardly stand it.
