These AMAZING Green Chili Burros come from my sister Jaclyns mother in-law, Susie. Susie is the most down to earth, sweetest lady I have ever met. : )  After high school, I moved to Bullhead, AZ to live with my sister Jaclyn and her husband Andy. I had landed a job with Jaclyn working for Dr. Currivan, an Oral Surgeon. It was one of the best experiences of my life. I worked for Doc for almost 5 years. He taught me so much! I finally moved out of Jac and Andy’s house, and into an apartment. Susie would sometimes drop by to bring me chocolate chip cookies and to just visit. They were the greatest chocolate chip cookies I have ever tasted!

Susie is known for making these delicious Burros. It is a Cross Rib Roast, shredded and mixed with a heavenly Green Chili Gravy you make from the drippings. You wrap it up into a tortilla and add any kind of toppings you like! Tonight, I added some Monterrey Jack cheese, sour cream and salsa to ours. They were divine : ) Thanks for sharing this recipe Susie!!

  1. Ok, here you go again! I sware you must be reading my mind! I was thinking about making some sort of shredded meat tacos this week. I think we might have been twins separated at birth!

  2. I made these with some leftover(frozen) spicy pork! It was a huge hit for us! Leftovers are on the menu tonight, YUM!!! Thanks for the recipe and the peek at my site, Holly!

  3. this looks so delicioso! I love flank steak, which is what this looks like, but i use the pressure cooker to tenderize it. takes much, much less time than 8-9 hours to cook! 🙂

  4. Going through your archives in case you can’t tell, lol! THESE are going on my menu next week. We are HUGE Green Chili freaks in this house…HOLY YUM!

  5. I have been looking for this recipe for years. I had one that sounds just like this. The kids loved it. In my many moves when we were single on our own I lost my Ted Degraiza litttle cookbook my mom gave me. There was a recipe just like this. I know I used ground beef back in the day but this is going to be perfect. I can’t wait to make it with shredded beef.

  6. Having a party tomorrow for my husband Tony! He is now an American. So invited 60 people. And I made green Chile burritos from your recipe. And it is a success! Going to let it sit over night and it is going to be a hit! Thabks, The burning Mom.. T

  7. This looks great, but the recipe doesn’t say whether it’s a pork roast or a beef roast. To me it looks like pork. Can you specify (i’ve never heard of a cross rib roast). Thanks.

  8. I just wanted to say thank you for this. My grandmother had this recipe (well almost the same) and our family made special occasions synonymous with her green Chile burritos. For more than 30 years. I tried to obtain the written recipe from her before she passed…and it was finally made available 2 me 2 years after she died. (Family feud would be an understatement). Anyways, I just wanted to say thank you for sharing this great recipe with the world! More people should give it a try…they won’t be sorry
