This ia an adoptee that I have tried and it really is a tasty dish. Halves easily and is just full of flavor. Of course you may adjust the amount of hot peppers to your liking. I browned the meat well before I added it for extra flavor.

This was awesome! I wanted a thicker chili so I did thicken this with corn starch. Thank you for the recipe.

Very good, and just the right amount of heat. A hearty and tasty New Mexico-style green chili.

Well, this is cooking right now. I will be interested to see how it tastes with the tomatillos. We never put that in our green chili. Never hurts to try something new. I myself grew up in Colorado and now live in Florida and you can not find green chili anywhere. I also miss the bushels of chilis I used to buy. :(
