"My mother in law got this recipe from a fire man. It is one of their favorites in the fire house, now it is one of ours. Serve with Flour tortillas, rice, and a sprinkling of cheese, if desired."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This recipe was a huge hit! I made it for my husband and parents around the holidays. Our grocery has a limited offering in the way of chilis, so I substituted with jalapenos, and it worked fine. While it made a lot, it was perfect to serve four people and have leftovers for lunch during the week. I've been recommending the recipe to all my co-workers who enjoy cooking.
followed the recipe but for some reason came out extremly watery, drained some of the liquid off and added a can of tomato sauce, was able to salvage the meat, will not make again
This is the best most authentic Chile Colorado I've ever had, it doesn't get any better than this. I have people begging me to make this at least once a month. Thank you so much for sharing!
Make 1/2 recipe next time
I liked this recipe but I added garlic and fresh tomatoes (trying to cut down on sodium) and will recommend it to my friends.
With all the wonderful reviews on this dish I expect a great dish. I must have made this wrong because my family didn't like it at all. Good thing I only made half a recipe.
This should be called tomato Colorado. Way too much tomato and not authentic at all. If anything this recipe resembles chile verde more. The Colorado ( red) color of chile Colorado should come from dried red chiles not the tomato. Jalapeños and Serrano peppers are not traditionally used for this recipe. No one enjoyed this recipe and had to be given to the dogs.
I made this last week and my husband LOVED it!!!! His mom was half Mexican, so he grew up on Mexican food. He was very happy that this was so close to how she made it!!!!! I will HAVE to make it again :)
It is a lot though, I made half of the recipe and it still would have fed at least 6 people with a large appetite!!!!
