Fay's Green Chile Stew (Chile Verde)

READY IN: 1hr 55mins

This is a recipe that I got from a Mexican cookbook but the name escapes me. I do know that I have made it for many years and it only gets better. It doubles and triples and freezes well. Chunks of pork, green chilies, mixed together with onions and savory seasonings will have you going for seconds!

  6. Add tomatoes and chilies with juices.
  7. Add cumin, salt and pepper to taste. Cover and simmer gently for 1/2 hrs., or until pork is tender.
  8. This is great alone, or with a side dish of hot refried beans, a crisp salad with avocados and tomatoes, and warmed flour tortillas. Add a frosty cold beer and you've got it made!
