Pork and Green Chile Stew

Carolyn Haas


We stopped at a chile pepper stand in Hatch, NM. The proprietor, Gilly, ( as in Gilly's Chilies) gave me his favorite recipe for pork stew - 1 pound cut up pork, 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 can cheddar cheese soup and 1 tablespoon chile powder. It sounded like a good start, but way too soup-y for me! I found some recipes on line and combined them and Gilly's to come up with this!

How to Make Pork and Green Chile Stew


  1. Heat oil or spray in large pot. Add pork and onions. Saute until pork is no longer pink and onions are wilted, about 5 minutes. Add garlic. Keep stirring for another minute
  2. Sprinkle meat mixture with cumin, oregano, salt and pepper. Add tomatoes, beans, soup, salsa, corn, instant brown rice and water. Stir until evenly mixed. Cook on low for about 15 minutes.
  3. Stir mixture, sprinkle grated cheese on top. Cover pan and turn heat on low or turn off heat completely to let cheese melt for a few minutes.
  4. Serve with a wedge of lime or lemon, a sprinkle of cilantro leaves, some cut up avocado and some crushed tortilla chips.
  5. NOTE: You can easily increase heat by using 2 cans of green chiles, or add a pinch or two of cayenne. Also you can use Rotel tomatoes with green chile at whatever spiciness you desire!
