I have tried and tried to make green chile without any luck.  I tasted a good one once, she gave me her recipe, but do you think it turned out the same as hers?!?!  Heck no.

I have my tortillas ready to eat it out of the pot....Wanna share a great recipe with me?  Not too hot though.

Thanks in advance!!

Fresh roasted green chiles - mild, medium or hot.  (I buy them at the farmer's market...usually one sandwich baggie FULL is about enough for my crock pot.)

1 or 2 11 oz cans diced tomatoes (or use fresh)

1 or 2 onions

2 c chicken or veggie stock

4 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 lb pork stew meat (optional)

salt & pepper to taste

water

Peel and dice green chiles.  Put in crock pot.  Add tomatoes, onions, stock, garlic and stew meat.  Add salt & pepper to taste.  Add water almost up to top of veggies.  Cover and cook all day on low setting.

If you like it thicker, you can add 2 teaspoons of cornstarch mixed with 1/4 water during the last half hour of cooking.

My crock pot is the middle sized...not the "dipper", not the huge one, but the average one in between!  :-)  This is a nice simple recipe and it never lasts long around my house.  Lots of room for variation to taste, too.  I was trying to stretch a batch once, and added potatoes.  It was surprisingly good!   I tried canned chiles once and it just wasn't the same.

You are welcome!!  Good luck.  I've got a batch in the crock pot right now and it is smelling heavenly!!  Perfect for a wonderfully chilly day like today.  :-)
