    Jimbocous's Note:

    Simple basic fare; ribs smothered in Green Chile with potatoes. Easy to put in the crock pot and forget. The longer it cooks, the better it tastes. I first stumbled on this recipe in one of the local Mexican eateries, and just had to figure out how to make it at home. Make plenty; it tastes even better the second day. Pork chops or country style ribs may be substituted for pork short ribs, if desired. Buttered corn is a good vegetable to serve with this.

    1. 1
      Remove excess fat from ribs as required. Cut rack of ribs only as needed to fit in large pot. Bring to boil and then fast simmer slabs of ribs in water, seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic powder, for 30-45 minutes. As ribs are boiling, place green chile in slow cooker. Heat to just bubbling, but do not allow to come to a boil.
    2. 2
      Remove ribs from boiling water, and slice into individual ribs. Arrange ribs in slow cooker, then place raw potato cubes on top, ensuring that ribs and potatoes are fully submerged in green chile.
    3. 3
      Simmer until potatoes are fully cooked, 2-3 hours. If the Green Chile gets too thin, thicken with a little Corn Starch.
    4. 4
      With slotted spoon, remove potatoes from cooker to plates, top each serving with shredded cheddar and place under broiler just long enough to melt the cheese.
    5. 5
      Arrange ribs on plates, and cover with ladled green chile. Serve with warmed tortilla to sop up the good stuff.
