Green Chili Stew

This is a recipe basically from the guy at the Farmers Market selling vegetables.  I added all the subtleties.

  • Ingredients
    • Pork Country Ribs or Chicken, breasts or whole bird suggest 2 pounds near about.
      • Country rib cut has some fat, and loin and does great to grill it out.
    • Green Chili ( how spicy is your choice, Hot Hatch, Big Jim’s, Anaheim’s, or a combination to get to the heat level you like.  I do a split of Big Jim’s and Anaheim’s or Poblano’s )
    • Garlic
    • Chicken stock
    • Dark Beer ( optional )
    • Fresh Sweet Corn about 2 ears
    • Potatoes ( optional, 2 medium sized )
    • Onion
    • Zucchini
    • Oregano, Salt, and Pepper


  • Grill the country ribs or roast the chicken season as you would a pork chop or beer can the chicken, grill chicken breasts, what works for you.
  • While that is going take an onion, Garlic, and saute in a dutch oven preferably over a grill, adding oregano, lite amount of salt and pepper to taste.
  • Take the roasted green chili you just bought at the farmers market and clean, chop in sizes that work for you, chunks, or fine.
  • Add the green chili to the onion and garlic, saute for a bit then add chicken stock and beer or just stock as you like.  Let how it tastes be your guide.
  • While that simmers, take your meat and either chunk or shred as you like and add to the Dutch oven, make sure you have enough liquid to cover.
  • Check your salt level, taste.
  • Boil your corn.  Let cool enough to cut the kernels from the cob. Set aside to add near the end.
  • Cut your potatoes if you want, and add to dutch oven, I suggest cutting these in very small half inch squares.  I would go fewer than you think, they will compete with the zucchini and corn. But it is a good way to stretch the quantity.
  • Add potatoes to the Dutch oven, make sure you have enough liquid to cover
  • Cut your Zucchini in to chunks, about 3/4 of an inch, set aside to add later.
  • Make sure you have enough liquid to over adding your potatoes, Zucchini and corn. ( keep reminding you don’t I )
  • When the potatoes are ready, add the corn and Zucchini, they will only need a little more cooking, I like my Zucchini with some crunch.
  • If you like, add some corn starch slurry to thicken, but you may not need it.

This is a guide and this is an art, go with the flow and the taste of the particular ingredients you have.

Drink a Corona, or Modelo or some similar beer while enjoying the stew.
