It is important to use New Mexico Hatch chiles in this recipe- but be forewarned, they are much hotter than the California Anaheim chiles commonly sold in cans ( such as Ortega brand) in supermarkets. My daughter, a New Mexico resident for many years, adds a cup of good beef stock and half of bottle of Corona beer in place of some of the water in the recipe. In addition a tbsp of cumin, which gives the stew a deeper, more complex flavor.
This was just ok for us. I think it needed something. And I added a lot of stuff. Jalapeño, cumin, red pepper, chili powder. I threw it all in the crockpot. When I served it, I topped it off with shredded cheese, queso fresco, sour cream, and sir racha. Still lacking in flavor!
Delicious, great recipe easy to make. I did cut the size of the recipe down for the 2 of us. Making the recipe as stated using 1/2 pound ground turkey & 1/2 pound ground beef the 1 onion, 3 cloves garlic, we love garlic, 1 meduim potato, 1 can pinto beans 1 can Italian style stewed tomatoes. 1 1/2 cans greens chiles.I put the other 1/2 can chilies in the cornbread that I made to serve with the stew. Thank you for posting this yummy easy to make recipe.
This is really good! Very similar to other stews I make, but I had never combined potatoes and beans. Silly me! I did make one substitution: I didn't have Italian-style tomatoes, so I used Rotel.
Very much enjoyed this one. Added a minced chipotle for a little zing. Thank you! Margie
Very good but I think it needs more chilies.
Very good combination. Only added more chilies than called for, as we really like green chilies. Freezes well.
