I made this tonight after finding a slow cooker version that I modified for what I had in my pantry. It was a mega hit with the family!

How to Make Green Chile Pork Stew


  • 1In a large stockpot, heat a couple of tablespoons of olive oil til you start to see a bit of smoke wafting and add pork to sear on all sides. Be careful of grease splatter! Once pork has browned, add in diced onion & garlic and salt, pepper and comino. Cook until onions are translucent. Add a tablespoon of flour and cook for a bout a minute.
  • 2Add in about 1/2 cup of chicken stock to deglaze the pot and then add in remaining chicken stock. Add green chiles, tomatoes, squash & corn and simmer for a solid 30 minutes. May need to add more chicken stock depending on how much liquid you prefer in your stew.
  • 3After stew has simmered add in cilantro and jalapeno and simmer another 15 minutes. Can serve over rice with fresh cilantro to garnish along with sour cream and avocado slices.
