I couldn?t put together a collection of fresh chile recipes without including my favorite?green chile stew. This has been a popular staple in northern New Mexico for hundreds of years, ever since the Spanish introduced domesticated pigs. In the late summer and early fall, when the crops come in and everyone starts roasting and putting up chiles for the coming year, I keep a pot of this stew simmering on the stove to fill and freeze in containers to enjoy during the cold winter months. from the eat more heat

Recipe Directions for new mexico green chili stew

  1. In a heavy skillet, brown the pork over medium to medium-high heat, adding a little oil if needed. When the pork is browned, transfer it to a large stockpot. Add the onions and some more oil to the same skillet and until the onions turn a golden brown, 5 to 10 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for an additional minute. Transfer the mixture to the pot with the pork.

  2. Add 2 cups of broth to the skillet, raise the heat, and deglaze the skillet, being sure to scrape all the bits and pieces from the sides and bottom. Pour the broth over the pork in the stockpot.

  3. Add the remaining ingredients to the stockpot, bring it to just below boiling, reduce the heat, and simmer for 1 to 1 hours, or until the meat is very tender and starts to fall apart.
