Special Equipment Needed

Food Facts

Cascabel chiles add a deep, smoky nutty flavor to stews, soups and sauces. About 1-1/2 inches in diameter, these round reddish-brown chiles have a smooth shiny, thick skin. Cascabel chiles are sold in a dry form and can be found at Hispanic grocery stores next to the dry chiles, spices and condiments.

How to Use Your Stove Top

Prepare tomatillo sauce and meat mixtures as directed. Bring to boil; cover. Simmer on medium-low heat 1 hour 15 min. or until pork chunks are tender.


If you don't have an ovenproof Dutch oven, cover handles of regular Dutch oven with several layers of foil before placing in oven. Or, you can bake recipe in large casserole instead.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It was delicious. It was delicious. Served it for company and it was a hit with everyone. I couldn't findn cascabel peppers so I used red pepper flakes and it still turned out great. Did take quite awhile to do all the prep work before getting it in the oven, but it was worth it.
