    Zhukov's Note:

    Your basic green chile stew. The most important ingredient is the green chiles themselves; for best taste, I highly recommend roasted Hatch green chiles. I got the inspiration for this recipe from my favorite Tex-Mex joint, Chuys. I think it tastes like a pretty close facsimile thereof. One thing that Chuy's sometimes does is roast the vegetables instead of simmering them. If you choose to go that route, don't simmer them in the stew or they'll become too soft.

    1. 1
      Heat the oil in stock pot or dutch oven over medium-high heat.Sprinkle the flour over the oil and whisk to create a light roux, about 5 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add the tomatillos to the roux and saute for a few minutes.
    3. 3
      Add garlic and saute for 30 seconds or until garlic becomes fragrant. Slowly whisk in the chicken broth and combine well. Add the carrots and simmer for 20 minutes.
    4. 4
      If using chicken thighs: Add chicken thighs with the carrots. Skim off any fat which rises to the surface periodically while simmering ingredients.
    5. 5
      Add the remaining vegetables and simmer until the vegetables are almost tender, about 45 minutes to an hour.
    6. 6
      If using chicken thighs: Pull chicken thighs from stew and let cool on a cutting board. When chicken has cooled, pull meat off of bones and shred into bite-size pieces. If using rotisserie chicken: Pull meat off of bones; discard skin and shred chicken into bite-size pieces.
    7. 7
      Add chicken to stew and stir to combine. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper as needed, and cumin to taste. If you don't like cumin too much, you can always use less; same for salt and pepper.
    8. 8
      Stir in cilantro and green onions (if desired) and simmer for a few more minutes.
    9. 9
      A note about the chiles: Hatch green chiles are best, and the heat in the stew depends primarily on the heat of the chiles. If your chiles are mild and you prefer more heat, you can add cayenne as desired. If hatch chiles are unavailable, you can also use Anaheim chiles. Roast them yourself on the grill, under a broiler, or on your gas cooktop until the skins are charred. Wrap in plastic foil for a few minutes until skin has softened, then scrape charred skin off of chiles.
