Green chili stew is a very popular dish in New Mexico which is where I grew up. I make this easy stew on Christmas Eve (slow cooked in a crock-pot for 6-8 hours). The level of desired spicyiness will vary for different people. Canned green chili is too mild for my taste. For those who prefer spicier green chili, I recommend www.buenofoods.com - a popular New Mexico chili retailer. You can also choose to make a milder stew and serve extra green chili on the side so people can adjust the spicyness. I highly recommend you try this stew - it will warm your bones on a cold winter's day. YUM!
It was okay - just not what I was looking for. Maybe I was expecting something with a kick - it was surprisingly mild. I'm glad I tried it but I'll stick with traditional beef stew.
WONDERFUL recipe. I made it even simpler by just throwing everything in my slow cooker and letting it cook for 2-3 hours until tender. I added the potatoes about 1/2 an hour before serving.
My husband really liked this. He is Mexican and does not like Tex-Mex food, which is what usually passes as Mexican food. He said this was just like something his mom makes, which means it's not only tasty, but also very genuinely Mexican and traditional. I added twice the amount of chopped green chiles, and added the hottest chopped tomatoes with chiles I could find. It still wasn't that hot, but it was very, very tasty and hearty.
OK I made this into my "own" recipe but used this one as a guideline. Instead of using beef I did pork cubes so therefore I ommitted the broth. I would reccommend using about a cup of water instead. I did not use the cucim but that was because I don't care for it. I chopped two small jalapeno's and browned them with the onion and meat. I DID NOT add the potatoes. Instead of using the canned chili's I chopped fresh, about one dozen. After browing the meat and onions and jalapeno's I mixed everything in the crockpot on low for as long as I needed. It is a very good recipe! Thanks Lynn!
This is a fantastic recipe to try if you've never made Green Chili Stew before. I did make mine with ground beef rather than beef stew meat or pork and used fresh roasted green chili (living in NM has it's advantages when it comes to getting authentic ingredients for this one!) that I purchased from Sunflower Market. A little tweaking of the spices to suit my personal tastes - I like a lot of garlic - fresh tortillas from a local establishment and we were in total green chili bliss! Suffice it to say I won't really need to be buying from local restaurants as I have found something just as good, if not better! Thanks for posting a great recipe :)
This was a delicious stew/soup. The s in my family went nuts for this recipe. This is something I will include in my monthly menu, I can't say enough about it!
I used pork loin as I think it goes so well with green chile. Like others, I made this in my slow cooker so I omitted the oil. I used 14 oz frozen green chile (with liquid) so I reduced the broth to 1/4 c. I didn't add tomatoes or potatoes for dietary reasons, but did add about two cloves minced garlic. This is very similar to the way I usually make my green chile meat, but I usually don't add cumin. I'll definitely be adding it from now on. Thanks Lynn!
