Charlie's Green Chile Stew

From NEW MEXICO magazine, 8/08 Charlie was Charles Elias, who ran Charlie’s Front and Back Door in Albuquerque. I love this stuff! I freeze it without the potatoes, as I dislike their change in texture when thawed, add raw cut-up potatoes to it after thawing and heat until potatoes are tender. Serves 4 generously.

    I LOVED Charlie's! Wondering if you know if they used this for their Kay's Special! That was to die for. I ate it every day for a few years until I moved to Kansas. Do you have any other recipes for Charlies?
