Green chile stew, just like I make it, plain and simple. I never measure my ingredients when I make it so I decided to try your measurements. Excellent. The only changes I made were I added 3 cloves of garlic! 13 oz of chile came out to 1 1/2 cups. I did add a 14 oz can of tomatoes because that is what I had and used about 1/2 cup of juice for part of the water. The cooking part: After adding the tomatoes to the chile meat mixture, I added 3 cups water and let it simmer for 35 minutes before adding potatoes. Then I added potatoes and simmered until the potatoes were done. Plain simple Green chile stew like I grew up on. Thanks for posting the recipe and for the measurements! Now when people ask me how I make my green chile stew I will give them this recipe!
