ok guys - time to crack out the big guns.
i'm in a chili cookoff next sunday, and i was going to make some delicious chili verde that was sure to kick a**. i've just learned tho, that one of our attendees does not eat pork, which means using pork shoulder is out.
my usual recipe is to roast the ground shoulder (and bones if i have them) in broiler, and once good and crusty, toss all into a pot with roasted tomatillos, etc. can i substitute another protein? perhaps a combo of beef and chicken? i'm worried chicken will be too lean ...
