Green Chile Stew

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by Grandma Deb

We went to Hatch, NM to their Chile Festival in the fall of 2011. We had green chile literally every meal and it was wonderful!! This recipe is a very simple one that comes from the Hatch cookbook I got there. The house smells like a Mexican restaurant when cooking and you can use it so many ways. Over burritos, hamburgers, or even eggs for breakfast.

This was basically just a chili verde, but with potatos added. It had a really great flavor, and since I have a bumper crop of potatos and chilies, I probably over did it -- but that just made it come out that much better. I also added in a jar of green salsa, and that helped with the flavor. Need to remember this one for when it gets cold out.
