I can see why your husband loves this recipe. The green chilies add such a nice flavor to this dish. My 14 year old son made this while I was out of town visiting colleges with my daughter. We had the leftovers when I go back. It was fantastic reheated. I am glad I had him double the recipe because the three of them ate one whole flank steak. LOL We have 2 crockpots so that isn't a problem. These is a true keeper. These would be nice served on a hoagie roll with hot mustard.
