Top Review by lauraschnyders

I make this style Green Chile Stew all of the time. It is absolutely the best with Hatch Green Chile. The only difference between mine and yours is that I add tomatoes and season with Cumin, a dash of parsley, and black pepper. It fills the house with such a wonderful aroma!!! Smells like home, New Mexico.
