Green Chili Burros
adapted from Becoming Betty

Green Chile Burros!


  • 3-4 lb. roast ( beef or pork)
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 4oz. can green chiles
  • 1/2 -1 jar green chile salsa
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cumin


  1. *Place roast in crock-pot and pour all ingredients on top. Cook on low about 8 hours. Shred and mix well before serving.

I use the uncooked tortillas for my burros. They taste so much better! I like to melt cheese on mine too! :)

Put the meat on the tortilla and top with lettuce, tomato’s, cheese, pico, sour cream, salsa….whatever you like… or have on hand! ;)

Then serve with chips and this yummy salsa recipe!

    I commented earlier on something else and gave you the Pizza Casserole recipe… I meant to tell you that I tried this recipe after you posted it once in your menu and it was really good!! I ended up trying 3 different Becoming Betty recipes that week.

    I’m originally from Arizona and now live in northern Virginia.

    Anyway, I was looking for a recipe for Green Chile Burrors and found your website and your recipe. So glad I did.

    Hard to find good Mexican food in Virginia (at least the kind we’re used to in Arizona that’s more Sonoran-based) so I’m glad I found your recipe for Green Chile.

    Thanks you very much!

    I forgot to ask but how many servings would you get from this recipe as I didn’t see servings amount.
