Tonight’s Menu: Pork Chili Verde in Flour Tortillas, Tomato and Avocado Salad

I’ve blogged about this dish before, but it’s a staple in our home and as the days get cooler and shorter, we will be turning to meals like this more and more to warm us instantly as we come home from school and work. It doesn’t hurt that it makes the whole house smell marvelously of garlicky, meaty goodness…and, it’s the easy dinner meal you’ve ever prepared! The leftovers keep well and go nicely atop mixed greens for work lunch salads.


1-2 lb. boneless pork loin
1 jar of salsa verde
4-6 medium sized garlic cloves, pureed
