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.
I make this type of green chile all the time. I usually use dynamite and mira sol chiles. Abolutely delicious with fresh homemade flour tortillas. THanks!
Brings back fond memories from when I lived in New Mexico. But I made the "poor man's" version but substituting ground beef for the cubed meat. I also substituted canned diced potatoes since my schedule is really tight. I was taught while living in N.M. to roast my Anaheim peppers on the grill or under the broiler, then put them in a paper bag to steam them (this makes peeling them much easier) for about 10-15 minutes, seed them and then chop them. I make a ton of these at once and freeze them in snack size zipper bags for future use. Thank you for reminding me how good a easy meal can taste.
