The Best Green Chile Stew Recipe

The BEST Green Chile Stew is stacked with scaled down pieces of pork that are prepared with onion and a lot of garlic.

The pork is stewed in a green chile sauce (that is salsa verde for those of you who aren’t acquainted with the language) until sufficiently delicate to nearly self-destruct when you nibble it.

Loaded up with that overpowering pork, potatoes, and broiled green chile, this stew is the thing that I long for when the climate begins chilling each fall.
