Green Chile Stew

One thing that I miss about New Mexico is the abundance of fresh green chiles!  
I absolutely love the smell of roasting chile and most of the New Mexico air is just alive with the aroma during harvest season!! 
When this happens, I know it's time for a great pot of Green Chile Stew!  
Served with a few tortillas on the side, perfection!!

Green Chile Stew

  • 3 lbs of Pork shoulder cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 6-7 Anaheim green chiles, roasted and chopped into 1/2" pieces or 1(14oz) can of chopped green chiles
  • 1 large purple onion, chopped
  • 3 Whole Potatoes, cubed
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Mexican oregano
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 (10oz) can green enchilada sauce
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Flour Tortillas
1. Season pork cubes with salt and pepper and brown in a large dutch oven with the olive oil over medium high heat until brown in batches.
2. Remove the pork cubes and allow to drain on paper towels.
3. Add chopped onions in the dutch oven and cook until soft and translucent about 5-6 minutes.
4. Add green chiles, garlic, cumin, oregano and cook for 1minute.

  1. Yum, yum! I got the first green chile wiff at Albertson's this weekend! What a great time of year!

  2. Honestly, I've always been kinda jealous of New Mexicans and their roasted chiles! My opinion is that roasting is just about the best thing that can be done to chiles. I've never had green chile stew...looks yummy!
