Chile Verde Diera

(Real Green Chili, a prize winning recipe I developed for a Dutch oven  contest)

5-6 lbs. Chopped lean meat
(pork or chicken--chicken cooks faster)
2 cloves crushed garlic
1 diced green pepper
1 diced medium onion
2 tsp. Salt
Dash of pepper
1 ½ tsp. Ground cumin
1 T. Chili powder
½ bunch of cilantro
12oz. can lemon/lime soda
15oz. can mild or medium green salsa
3 drops liquid smoke (optional)

May be cooked in any pot, Dutch oven is ideal.  Mix all ingredients and simmer until done, about 40-45 minutes.  To thicken, remove 2 cups of the broth, add ¾ cups corn starch, ½ t. Kitchen Bouquet (optional).  Pour back onto chili, mix well and bring to simmering to thicken.  (add more cornstarch if it doesn’t thicken enough…)Serve on soft, warmed flour tortillas, or rice.
Top with:  diced tomatoes, diced green peppers, cilantro, grated cheese, sour cream, ranch dressing, sliced olives, guacamole etc…
