  • 1 lb smoked pork shoulder If you don't have smoked pork shoulder, you can use uncooked pork shoulder, but it won't taste nearly as good.
  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • ½ cup onion, diced
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp ancho or green chile powder
  • 1 tsp celery salt
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken stock
  • 15 oz green enchilada sauce
  • 1 cup beer IPA preferred
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 large jalapeño pepper, diced
  • 16 oz Hatch Green Chiles, chopped


  • Chop the pork shoulder into bite size chunks.

  • Add the olive oil to a large pot (preferably cast iron), place on the stove top and heat to medium high. Add the pork bites to the pot and brown, rendering out the fat, then set aside, leaving ½ tbsp of the fat and all the bits in the pot.
