Dee's Santa Fe Green Chile Stew

This is my DD's recipe that she shared with me when she was living in Santa Fe. I am sure that every family in New Mexico has their own favorite version, but this is my favorite. It can also be cooked in a crockpot, but I like the texture of the stew, cooked on top of the stove.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sprinkle the pork with flour to lightly coat.
  2. In a large pot (I use a Dutch oven), brown the meat in oil.
  3. Add chiles, chicken stock, vegetables, salt& pepper, and water if needed.
  4. Bring to a boil, lower heat to medium low.
  5. Cover and simmer until meat and vegetables are done, and the stew is slightly thickened (about 3 hours).
  6. You may cook in a crockpot for 6-8 hours.
  7. Serve with flour tortillas.

Oh my, someone done stole my I am a 67 yr old New Mexican and as far back as I can remember this stew has been made pretty much as written. I remember my grandma cooked a pot of pintos and added a couple of spoonfuls to our bowls of the stew. My mom would add tomatoes and serve it over rice if she thought it was a bit too spicy. In the cold NM winters you will always find a pot of either green chili stew, red chili stew, posole, menudo or caldo de res in my kitchen. Thank you Lord for plopping me close to Hatch

I can see Miss Annie's daughter is following in her mother's footsteps - another champ in the kitchen! This was so delicious and warming on a cold night. I used dried green chiles that I soaked in water first. We loved this, and I will definitely make it again!
