New Mexican Green Chile Stew

green chile stewLike any good New Mexican, I love green chile (also known as Hatch chile) in any form; rellenos, enchiladas, scrambled into eggs, topping a cheeseburger… really, you can’t go wrong.  My favorite way to use green chiles however, is to create a stew.

To begin, you will need the following ingredients:

ingredients–  3 chicken breasts
– 1-2 bouillon cubes
–  2-3 small onions
–  1 handful of garlic cloves
–  2 potatoes
–  1 bunch of carrots
– 1 can of posole (hominy)
– 20 large roasted green chiles

To begin, create a stock using chicken breasts; once chicken is fully cooked, remove, allow to cool, then shred.  To add additional flavor to the stock, add 1-2 bullion cubes.

shredded chickenSaute onions & carrots until onions are translucent, and add to chicken stock with diced potatoes, shredded chicken, posole, garlic cloves & diced green chiles. Allow mixture to stew for at least 2 hours.

chile & chipsServe with shredded cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream & tortilla chips or a flour tortilla for dipping. For extra spice, serve with a cocktail made with Serrano-Infused Tequila.

Enjoy!
