Green Enchilada Pork Chili

WLS recipe for the Instant Pot or Stove Top

You will love the flavors of this Green Enchilada Pork Chili that is packed with protein and flavor. So filling for patients who've had Gastric Sleeve, Bypass or DS! You can also make this WLS recipe in your Instant Pot! #wlsrecipes #gastricsleeverecipes #gastricbypassrecipes #wlsinstantpot #bariatricchili

Note: I hate to assume everyone has an Instant Pot and would not want to exclude anyone from this recipe if they did not have one! So I’ve included both cooking methods for this Green Enchilada Pork Chili below.

However, I am now going to address those of you who have an IP. Or another brand of Pressure Cooker.

If you haven’t made pork with your Instant Pot, this is the recipe to try. It can be tricky to keep pork from drying out but with the right amount of liquid with the pressure cooker and your pork will be flavorful and moist!

I really love the green salsa in this recipe. You can find this in the Mexican food aisle for very little cost. All the ingredients in this recipe are affordable and it makes a large quantity. If you don’t need a large quantity, divide the chili into several smaller containers and freeze for another cold night this winter!
